|Puan Chang Cheong|
Puan Chan Cheong is the founder of Green Packet Inc., a technology company in the USA in 2000. He subsequently founded Green Packet Berhad in Malaysia, and is the Group Managing Director and CEO of the Green Packet Group of companies.
A visionary, Puan has always envisaged an 'always connected' world and this vision is integral to the core businesses of the Green Packet Group; both as developer and provider of mobile broadband solutions and as a forerunner in commercial deployment of the WiMAX technology. Through the Group's WiMAX telecommunications service provider arm, Packet One Networks, Green Packet will be the first to commercially launch 802.16e 2.3 Ghz WiMAX in the Asia Pacific in Malaysia; and is set to achieve the world's largest WiMAX network coverage by population per capita.
With his zeal and gumption, Puan has led the Green Packet Group to become one of the leading players in the mobile broadband solutions space. He has also steered the Group's holding company, Green Packet Berhad, to its listing on the Malaysian Exchange of Securities Dealing & Automated Quotation (MESDAQ) market where it was enviably the biggest and most profitable company on the exchange in terms of market capitalization. Soon after, Green Packet Berhad transitioned to the Main Board of the Malaysian Bourse (Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad).
Puan has strategically driven the global reach and expansion of the Group, which now has presence in the USA, South East Asia and Oceania, Middle East and Africa, China, and the Far East. Under his stewardship, Green Packet had been conferred numerous recognitions, amongst them, Deloitte Technology Fast 500, Asia Pacific listing for two consecutive years. His personal accolades include the coveted 'Technopreneur of the Year' award by PIKOM, the Association of the Computer and Multimedia Industry, Malaysia.
Prior to Green Packet, Puan has more than 15 years of business experience from consulting, developing and managing large-scale telecommunications, infrastructure and property projects.
Puan holds a double degree in Business Administration and Management Information Systems & Finance from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, USA.
