Jamaludin Ibrahim
CEO, Maxis Communications Bhd

Telco and Internet service player Maxis, formerly Binariang, doubled its revenue from 1997 to 1999 under Jamaludin's tenure despite the tough economic conditions.

Storming the marketplace

"In 1999, after a tough consolidation year in 1998, Maxis launched many new products and services, including Equal Access, Frame Relay/IP, Prepaid Mobile, Mobile Value-Added Services (SMS Information services), E-billing and a new Internet service--all with major success. Maxis' image during that time was also enhanced further as evident from analysts' reports and market surveys," pointed out Jamaludin.

For the new year, Jamaludin said Maxis is gunning for No. 1 in terms of network quality, customer services and innovation. "In 2000, we want Maxis to be the No. 1 leader in mobile services and a major player in Internet, data and other value-added services, with more than 1.5 million in combined subscriber base," he revealed.

Prior to Maxis, Jamaludin steered Digital Equipment Malaysia through a very successful four-year term.
