Recommendations For Suriya

Commercial Manager - Motorsport Proton “I met Suriya during my time with Honda Malaysia from 2001-2005. I was in aftersales while Suriya was in sales/marketing. What i will always remember about Suriya is his deep, undying passion for cars and the great lengths he would go to make sure he markets any product to the best he can. I will never forget the time when he requested my assistance in testing both the City and Vios in order to do a comprehensive comparison. We shared our expertise and had fun over the 2 days putting both cars through vigourous testing. After that session, Suriya came up with a fantastic slide show that showed the advantages of the City over Vios which even surprised the CEO ! I was impressed with the way he does things, which would definitely make the management of any company stand proud. In short, i would recommend him to any automotive company looking for a guy who thinks out of the box and is truly capable in surprising you with innovative ideas through his passion for cars.” October 8, 2011
