By Tricitynews Reporter
Singapore 22nd October:- AirAsia co-founder and Group CEO Tony Fernandes has won the 2016 Ernst & Young Asean Entrepreneurial Excellence Award for his contribution to the region. He received the award at a gala dinner at the Ritz Carlton Millennia here last night.
The accolade is awarded annually to Asean entrepreneurs who have demonstrated entrepreneurial spirit, financial performance, strategic direction, global or community impact, innovation and personal integrity or influence.
AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes said that it is a great honor to be recognized by Ernst & Young. An entrepreneur is only as good as his people though and he would like take this opportunity to thank the 17,000 AirAsia Allstars who made it all possible. They help him turn his dream into reality every day through their hard work, dedication, and attention to quality. This award is for you, Allstars.
He added that believe in the unbelievable, never take no for an answer, dare to dream big. Too many people are too afraid of failing so they dream small. Take small steps, certainly, but dream big. That way, if you try and miss, you're that much closer to where you want to be. And at least when you’re 60, you won't look back on your life and regret not taking any chances.
Max Loh, EY Asean and Singapore Managing Partner, Ernst & Young LLP said that from being an auditor to a music executive before buying over a loss-making airline, turning it around and transforming AirAsia to become an award-winning low-cost carrier, Tony’s entrepreneurial journey is truly distinctive and inspiring. AirAsia has helped to boost intra-regional connectivity and bring the world closer to Southeast Asia with its network. This has had a significant positive impact on the region’s movement of trade and people, as well as labor opportunities exemplifying the far-reaching socio-economic contributions that a single entrepreneur can have as a game-changing industry leader.
