Technology solutions firm Dell Malaysia has appointed a new managing director, C.S. (Ching Siang) Tang, who will also be responsible for a regional role as vice president of Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) commercial sales overseeing Dell's customer experience and sales operations in the APJ region.
Dato' Simon Wong is retiring after 14 years with Dell while Tang's new role is effective from 1 April 2012, according to a statement by Dell Malaysia on 2 April 2012.
"The Dell team in APJ has consistently achieved the highest rates of productivity and quality and this is a testament of Simon's inspirational guidance and vision for success," said Dell APJ president, Amit Midha. "On behalf of everyone at Dell, I would like to thank him for driving the Dell team in Malaysia and APJ to deliver great value and results for our customers."
One of Dato' Simon's biggest contributions was championing Dell's corporate giving efforts in Malaysia, which he drove with a passion, raising donations for children's causes and Dell's public scholarship programme, said Midha.
"I am deeply honoured and very excited with the opportunity to lead Dell's operations and building on the very strong foundation we have in serving the community and our customers in Malaysia and the region," said Dell Malaysia's Tang, who joined Dell in 1996. "Taking over from Dato' Simon means I have very big shoes to fill but I strongly believe with my experience at Dell and with the support of our dedicated and talented team, we will be able to continue the outstanding legacy that he has created," said Tang.
Dell has also appointed Shankar Nagalingam as its new human resource director for Malaysia, taking over from Phor Hooi Khoon who moves on to Dell China.
