From the CEO
MR. NAGUIB MOHD NOR
COO, Strand Aerospace Malaysia Sdn. Bhd.
His enthusiasm and in-depth technical ability made Naguib Mohd Nor as the Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder appears as a good role model of a leading aviation engineering company. He obtained his Bachelor’s Degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Manchester Institute of Science & Technology and Masters in Aerospace Vehicle Design from Cranfield University, both in the United Kingdom (UK). Mr Naguib began his career as a stress engineer at Strand UK, paved his way towards becoming the General Manager at Strand UK and subsequently, setting up Strand Aerospace Malaysia. He strategically positions Strand Aerospace Malaysia to be one of the world’s foremost aviation engineering services companies.
1 Mr Naguib is a firm believer that Malaysian engineers are among the Best in the world. Technically competent with a strong mathematical base, they can easily work anywhere in the world. With more exposure to the industry, this group of engineers will be able to appreciate the potential growth of the business; being the workforce for a knowledge-based service provider.
2 Mr Naguib believes that Malaysia has a lot of potential to be the hub of the engineering services for the region, particularly in aviation. Malaysian companies need to expand their networks to leverage on their strength in engineering. This can be achieved by doing their homework and shift their linking to be a global player rather than being easily content to service only their home market.
3 Mr Naguib would advise the Malaysian Diaspora to look for the opportunities in Malaysia to expand their business. They should build their network and keep tabs with the development in the country; as opportunities abound with the right partnership.
