Mr. Raja Segran, the energetic and popular Country Manager of Singapore International Airlines (SIA) for Indonesia is moving on to assume the top job for his company in the United Kingdom.
Leading SIA's Indonesian operations through a period marked by economic upheaval and the trauma wreaked on the travel industry in the aftermath of 9-11, Raja leaves Indonesia with many admirers for his courage and dedication while under fire.
While many other leaders in the national tourism sector did little more than loudly bemoan their misfortune, SIA proved itself one of Indonesia's best corporate citizens by actively committing funds and energy to re-launching the national tourism product. Since 2000 and during the watch of Mr. Segran, SIA has allocated more than US$ 3 million toward Indonesian tourism promotion.
Such dedication has not gone unnoticed, Indonesia awarded SIA and Mr. Segran with the Adikaryottama Award - the highest award bestowed by the Government for service to the tourism industry.
Born in Alor Setar in Malaysia in 1955, Raja joined SIA in 1980 and has held postings in Singapore, Belgium, France, the Philippines in addition to two separate postings in Jakarta.
Married and with a daughter in University, Raja has proven a popular figure during his Indonesian assignment. Considering every overseas assignment from SIA as his "new home," he has proven himself very adept at making friends during his Indonesian assignment, making the country measurably benefit from his four year assignment here. As Indonesian tourism looks to better days ahead, we have a debt of gratitude owed to Raja Segran.
