KUALA LUMPUR: Public Bank’s Founder and Chairman, Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Dr. Teh Hong Piow has been awarded the ‘The Greatest Malaysian Banker of All Time’ by the Asia Pacific Brands Foundation on 10 March 2018, during the Public Bank Management Seminar Dinner held at the Mines International Exhibition and Convention Centre.

Dr. KK Johan, President of the BrandLaureate, presented the award to Tan Sri Teh in the presence of more than 4,000 staff of the Public Bank Group.

Dr. KK Johan in his citation speech said, “For the past 50 years, there is no other banker extraordinaire that has steadfastly grown the bank to record breaking feats, positive growth year after year and for 2017, achieved a net profit to RM5.47 billion reached through organic growth and brilliant strategic moves”.

“The brilliant mind of Tan Sri Teh Hong Piow has no match and his astounding knowledge of the banking industry puts him ahead of the competition. Without Tan Sri Teh Hong Piow and Public Bank, I daresay that Malaysia’s banking industry and the country’s economy would not be what it is today.

He defines banking leadership and with his principles and philosophy has set standards of good banking practices, which is emulated and respected by his peers”, added Dr. KK Johan. Dr. KK Johan continued, “The APBF has specially crafted a trophy to present to you tonight – a trophy that symbolises your weight in the industry as a banking giant and a trophy that is very elaborate, specially crafted and designed like no other trophies designed before. A masterpiece only meant for the Great Master Banker. No one has received it before and is worthy of it except the honourable Founder Chairman of Public Bank, Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Teh Hong Piow. This award is meant only for the greatest and the best!”

In applauding Tan Sri Chairman’s latest award, Public Bank Managing Director Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Tay Ah Lek said, “On behalf of the Board of Directors, Management and staff of Public Bank Group, I wish to express our heartiest and heartfelt congratulations to Tan Sri Teh Hong Piow for being bestowed this BrandLaureate ‘The Greatest Malaysian Banker of All Time’ Award tonight”.

He said, “Tan Sri Chairman is the mark of an ideal leader whose hopes and dreams for Public Bank knows no bounds. The exemplary leadership of Tan Sri Chairman as ‘The Greatest Malaysian Banker of All Time’ has not only propelled Public Bank to the forefront of the Malaysian financial landscape but has also gained international respect and acclaim”.

“Tan Sri Chairman has contextual intelligence, a profound ability to understand the spirit of the times and harness the opportunities they present to create a successful organisation. These are the attributes that have enabled Public Bank to make stellar returns and create significant value for stakeholders over the years”.

According to Tan Sri Tay, “Tan Sri Chairman’s compassion towards his staff and excellence in all his endeavours, call immediately for our total respect and warmest love. Tan Sri Chairman, you are an inspiration not only to your Public Bank family, but also to generations of bankers and a continuing source of enlightenment”.

With this latest award, Tan Sri Teh has received a total of 45 personal to holder awards in recognition of his exemplary commitment to excellence and lifetime dedication to the banking industry.
