When I heard of this in the news I thought ‘How fitting…’. Indeed, it has been a ‘happening’ 3 years for Dato’ Syed Zainal as he helms Proton through its trials and tribulations. He has put much focus on changing the public perception of Proton; through quality & process improvement initiatives. And through rallying of the Proton workforce he has, I reckon, achieve the targets he has set out to achieve. Recently too, the new Proton Saga was awarded the Entry Level Car of the Year award by CBT and the equally well received Persona garnering an award dubbed as Malaysia’s “Best Model of the Year” at the Frost & Sullivan Asean Automotive Awards 2008. These additions made his award all the more meaningful.
Congratulations from all of us in Proton Design.
