“It is our strategy to invest in establishing a local presence in key global markets to expand and develop these relationships, and we plan to double our global footprint to six offices by Q1 2019.
“I am delighted to welcome Regional VPs, Offar Bin Musa and Nimalan Vikneswaran, who join us to open the first of our new offices in Kuala Lumpur.”
On his appointment, Offar comments: “It is a pleasure to be joining at such an exciting stage in the company’s development.
“I look forward to working with everyone at ACC, developing relationships with new and existing clients and suppliers and to further progressing the organisation’s international growth.”
