R.E.A.L Marks 30 Years with ‘Outstanding’ Award

On 27 March 2015, R.E.A.L Education Group was proud to be recognized by the Malaysia Venture Capital & Private Equity Association (MVCA) as an ‘Outstanding Investee Company for 2014’ during the association’s annual dinner and awards night held at the Sime Darby Convention Centre. As R.E.A.L prepares to celebrate its 30th anniversary this year, the bestowment of this award could not have come at a more appropriate and meaningful time.

Selected among just a few innovative and investment-worthy companies in Malaysia, the recognition serves as an indicator of R.E.A.L’s significant growth and overall performance in recent years as well as encouragement to keep on reaching higher. Undeniably, the acquisition of a significant minority stake into R.E.A.L by CIMB Private Equity (CIMB PE) in 2013 has been a catalyst to institutionalize and drive the growth and aspirations of R.E.A.L’s business trajectory on to the next level. Present to receive the award on the night was co-founder of R.E.A.L Education Group and Chairman of its Board of Directors, Mr. Sim Quan Seng.

“This esteemed award by MVCA will definitely hold a special place in the heart of R.E.A.L as 2015 is set to be another milestone year in the history and development of the Group,” said Mr. Ee Ching Wah, co-founder and President of R.E.A.L Education Group. “I never could have imagined back in 1985 when R.E.A.L was first founded, that the company would grow from such humble beginnings to being the premium education service provider that it is today. As we celebrate this award, I would like to pay tribute to the support and dedication of our valued customers, staff and people who inspire us every day to continue pushing to achieve greater heights,” he added.

Despite the numerous accolades that R.E.A.L has accumulated over the years, the Group will always remain steadfast in its mission to ‘Transform Lives through R.E.A.L Education’. By embracing R.E.A.L’s ‘5C’ core values’; which consist of Character, Collaboration, Communication, Critical Thinking and Creativity; the Group can rest assured in knowing that – “While awards inspire us to be better, it is core values that make us who we are”.
