An Entrepreneur – The Last Career

What is your career plan?

In 1984, I began my career as a lecturer at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, which was also my alma mater. However, upon completing my PhD, I made the decision to change paths and transitioned to the field of telecommunications. In 1994, I joined Celcom, a prominent telecommunication company.

At Celcom, I initially served as the Manager of Research and Development, and over the course of the next 13 years, I progressed to become a Vice President, overseeing various divisions within the company.

Following my tenure at Celcom, I embarked on a new phase of my career as the Wireless Communications Cluster Director at Mimos. In this role, I was responsible for conducting research and development in wireless technology, focusing on areas such as IPv6, WiMAX, and ultimately, the Internet of Things (IoT).

In 2015, I made the decision to join another telecommunications company with the objective of assisting them in establishing a new subsidiary known as Redtone IoT.

Subsequently, I ventured into full-time entrepreneurship, establishing my own startup named Favoriot. This marked the final phase of my professional journey, as I had reached the age of 60. My aim now is to retire after successfully building a company that I can take pride in.
