Outgoing Chief Executive Officer of Tourism Perak, Hj Musa Dun was honoured with a farewell lunch courtesy of his employer, Tourism Perak Sdn Bhd.
The lunch was held at the Kinta Riverfront Hotel, Ipoh on Monday, August 19 and was attended by the Who’s Who in the Perak tourism industry. Among them were well-meaning guests who were his keenest supporters during his 13-month stint at the state-linked agency. Executive Councillor for Tourism Nolee Ashikin Radzi was the guest-of-honour.
“Although my tenure in Tourism Perak was short it was the best ever posting I have had. I am thankful to the Executive Councillor and all those connected to the tourism industry for your support. Your assistance had made my work simpler,” he said with conviction.
Musa Dun has been posted to the Perak Sports Council (Majlis Sukan Perak) as its Director effective Thursday, August 1. His replacement is Puan Aida Hazlyn Hassan formerly of the state economic planning unit.
Aida is similarly pleased with her new appointment. “I am thankful for the confidence and trust vested in me by the Executive Councillor for Tourism. I’ll now concentrate on making the upcoming Visit Malaysia Year 2014 a success,” she told Ipoh Echo.
The majority of those attending the lunch had nothing but praise for Musa. “He’s a pleasant guy who is easy to work with. We’ll sorely miss his affectionate smile,” said Hj Odzman Abd Kadir, President of Perak Tourism Association.
Odzman’s parting words best describes the man who will now determine Perak’s sporting future.
