Murali Ambassador Launch
SINGAPORE, Sept 30, 2010: Seasoned Pro scored a coup by being appointed as event organizers for QNet, the Hong Kong-based global direct selling company, as they announced cricket spin wizard, Muttiah Muralidaran, as their brand ambassador.
The three-year appointment is the first upon his retirement from Test cricket, on July 22nd 2010, after making history as the first bowler to take 800 test wickets with the last ball of his Test career, resulting in Sri Lanka beating India.
QNet Regional Director for Singapore, Zaheer Merchant, said the company had a significant presence in the region through offices in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand.
But Singapore was chosen as the venue to make the global announcement of Muralidaranís appointment as it is an active cricket playing nation.
"Our national cricket team has been an associate member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) since 1974, and has played in every ICC World Cup qualifier, except in 1995 and 2005."
"Singapore is also the regional headquarters for QNetís travel and lifestyle division, under which our wellness and energy products are categorized. So it is fitting that we announce his appointment here," he said.
Merchant added, "Murali fits perfectly with our core values which are Service, Teamwork, Integrity and being Results Oriented. Hence, there is a clear synergy between our corporate values and all that Murali stands for."
