PORT operator Westports Malaysia Sdn Bhd and its executive chairman Tan Sri G. Gnanalingam each walked away with an award this year at the Brand Laureate Awards held in Kuala Lumpur on March 31.
Westports won the award for the Best Brand in Logistics – Ports while Gnanalingam won the award for Brand Personality.
Presented by the Asia-Pacific Brands Foundation, the Brand Personality is equivalent to the Grammy Award for Branding.
The award was presented by former prime minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
In a statement issued last week, Gnanalingam attributed the two awards to his staff who “have continued to innovate and provided the best services to our customers”.
He said winning the awards was further proof of the port’s capabilities and a testament to its quality of work.
“Westports was founded around innovation and the pursuit of excellence, and those core values have continued to be at the heart of everything we do,” he added.
