General Manager of Airline Marketing, Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB)
Mohamed Sallauddin is the General Manager of Airline Marketing at MAHB. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accountancy and Computer Science from Northern Illinois University, USA in 1985. He also holds a Master in Business Administration (MBA) (Strategic Management) Degree from the International Business School, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia.
His association with the aviation industry began when he was recruited by Malaysia Airlines (MAS) as a Management Trainee in 1986. He further enriched his aviation repertoire when he joined Malaysia’s first aircraft manufacturing company Composite Technology Research Malaysia (CTRM) Sdn. Bhd. in 1997, which afforded him the opportunity to serve in general aviation sectors in the USA and Australia. His employment with MAHB in 2001 saw him joining the cadres that led the marketing of the international gateways managed by MAHB that eventually allowed him to lead MAHB to organise Asia’s first World Route Development Forum in Kuala Lumpur in 2008. He is highly committed to making KLIA as the Next Generation Hub for both commercial airlines and travellers which are aligned to MAHB’s grand vision in years to come.
He currently serves as a Council Member of the Institute of Marketing Malaysia since 2007 and was also Executive Board Member of the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) for 2013-2015. His present appointment as Deputy Chairman of the PATA Malaysia Chapter underlines his belief that aviation and tourism are complementary to each other in generating sustainable air travel.
