We at The BrandLaureate is saddened by the passing of our The BrandLaureate Brand ICON Leadership Most Eminent Award 2013 recipient YBhg Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Utama Arshad Ayub. Our sincere condolence to YBhg Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Utama Arshad Ayub’s family, may the Almighty Allah give you patience and ease to pass through these trials.
YBhg Tan Sri Dato’ Seri was one of the greatest innovators and educational administrators in the country, YBhg Tan Sri Dato’ Seri was the first Director of Institut Teknologi MARA (now UiTM). He led it with courage and vision for one decade from 1965 to 1975. At ITM, YBhg Tan Sri Dato’ Seri believed that everyone can be educated as there are many late bloomers who are largely ignored by the education system.
Indeed, YBhg Tan Sri Dato’ Seri’s life is an inspiration to all Malaysians and a testament that with discipline and determination, education is a ladder for upward mobility.
May Almighty Allah dwell YBhg Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Utama Arshad Ayub in Jannatul Firdaus.
