Ipoh Echo welcomes Mohamed Hisam bin Mohamad Yusof who is the new General Manager of Tourism Perak Management Bhd effective July 1. Many in the tourism industry would know Hisam as the COO from Aidil Travel & Tours Sdn Bhd.
Hisam, who hails from Taiping, had his early education at King Edward Institution, Taiping and did his tertiary education at UiTM majoring in Business Administration. Hisam, 40, started work in the banking industry before moving to the tourism industry several years ago.
On why he switched from his comfy post at a tour agency, Hisam explained that “I wanted a challenge. I am aware that this new post for me is VERY challenging but I feel that I am able to bring in more tourists to my State”. Indeed with Visit Perak Year 2012 right around the corner that is a tall challenge. All the best Hisam.
