PETALING JAYA: Malaysian Resources Corp Berhad (MRCB) and its group managing director, Datuk Mohamad Salim Fateh Din received awards for two categories of the Global Leadership Award 2014 held recently.
Salim and MRCB came out tops respectively in the “Masterclass CEO of the Year” category and the best “Urban Regeneration Development” category, registering a significant recognition by industry specialists on the achievements of MRCB Group.
“I am simply ecstatic about this double-win for MRCB and myself. This is true recognition of MRCB’s achievements in the property development and construction sector plus my contributions to the sector before and after joining MRCB. I will continue to build on MRCB’s strengths and will commit myself and the able workforce of MRCB to deliver various infrastructures that support the national economic development agenda,” said Salim in a statement.
The Global Leadership Award is an awards programme designed to promote excellence, innovation and best practices in business entities and their leadership, and is widely regarded as the epitome of outstanding businesses and personalities in Malaysia.
The panel of judges had selected MRCB in the category it won based on the company’s Kuala Lumpur Sentral CBD development that is located on 72 acres of once-forgotten part of KL City Centre that used to be a railway marshalling yard. MRCB is one of the first property developers to embark on green development certifications and on urban regeneration development like Kuala Lumpur Sentral CBD.
A self-made entrepreneur Salim is no stranger in the property scene with his pioneering green innovations. Some of his other hallmark projects include MRCB’s 348 Sentral project (Menara Shell) at Kuala Lumpur Sentral CBD and the ongoing PJ Sentral Garden City - both hailed as industry benchmarks geared towards the highest standard of the Malaysian Green Building Index as well as the United State’s Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design.
