Idris Jala for FAM top job!

His biggest catch was reeling in a 51 kilo barracuda in Maldives.
But that could soon change if Dato Seri Idris Jala assumes the role of the President of the Football Association of Malaysia.
There have been strong vibes that FAM ought to seek the assistance of Idris Jala to transform its fortunes.
After all he has a brilliant career of doing extremely well in turning around several businesses or industries that have sought his knowledge.
Currently as Chief Executive Officer of the Performance Management and Delivery Unit  ( PEMANDU ) , a unit under the Prime Ministers Department.
The 58 year old Idris Jala is a Kelabit, from a small town of Bario , Sarawak.
It was during his 23 years in Shell that he acquired the reputation of being a turnaround specialist by reviving the fortunes of many of the oil company’ s major subsidiaries around the world.
And who can forget his efforts in turning around the fortunes of Malaysian Airlines.
Idris grew up in a longhouse and was driven by a word his Father often used – ketui – meaning burning desire to win.
And that is precisely what FAM needs, a person with such desire that will transform the Football fortunes through astute management and leadership abilities.
Much has been said about potential candidates to replace Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah as the president of FAM in the early elections to be held most likely before May next year.
A blues music fan, Idris Jala has the ability to remove the “blues” from the ills that plague FAM.
And perhaps that time is right to seek the help of a transformation guru if FAM is really serious about re-inventing themselves,
