KUALA LUMPUR: In a remarkable recognition of its pioneering strategies and strong emphasis on nurturing talent, Malaysia’s leading e-commerce conglomerate, Commerce.Asia, recently bagged the coveted ‘Asia’s Best Employer Brand Award 2023’ organised in conjunction with the 18th Employer Branding Awards 2023.

This regional accolade comes at a time when the Commerce.Asia Group has been making significant strides within the e-commerce landscape of Malaysia and Southeast Asia.

Spearheaded by the veteran entrepreneur and industry leader Ganesh Kumar Bangah since its inception in 2017, Commerce.Asia has been pivotal in reshaping the online business sector in the region.

During the award ceremony, the Group’s Head of Human Resources Ashvine Krishnan (left in pic) delivered an evocative acceptance speech. She commenced by expressing profound gratitude towards the stakeholders and dedicated team at Commerce.Asia.

The award was seen not merely as recognition of the company’s innovative solutions but as a testament to the nurturing and empowering environment it has fostered over the years.

“At the heart of Commerce.Asia’s ethos lies a mission to create an ‘All in One’ ecosystem catering to the diverse needs of businesses in Malaysia and Southeast Asia,” said Ashvine.

She also emphasised the significant role of their multi-faceted platforms - ranging from SiteGiant to Xamble Live - in achieving a remarkable Gross Merchandise Volume (GMV) of RM 6.2 billion last year, a feat that underscores the company’s prominent position in the e-commerce sector.

“At Commerce.Asia, we have always embraced a holistic approach, valuing each individual contribution to our meaningful and fulfilling journey thus far,” added Ashvine.

“The commitment to robust HR and people management practices has been a cornerstone of our strategy. This focus on human resources has catalysed this growth, establishing Commerce.Asia into a brand revered and trusted in the e-commerce domain.”

Meanwhile, Commerce.Asia Group CEO Kuna Kathigesan (right in pic) also highlighted the new strides made by the company through the introduction of CommercePay, an integrated payment solution launched in August 2022.

The solution, designed to meet the diverse needs of various online platforms, has been quickly adopted by many, with over 400 merchant users embracing it since its inception.

“Spearheaded by CTO Tee Pang Yong and General Manager Patricia Silvanus, both industry veterans with rich experiences, CommercePay has brought a revolution in the payment industry in Malaysia. It promises a user-friendly experience, eliminating setup fees, and facilitating a swift settlement process, an advantage that optimises cash flow management for businesses of all sizes,” said Kuna.

“As Commerce.Asia continues on our growth trajectory, we pledge to keep people at our core, nurturing aspirations, and fostering an environment of innovation and empathy. With this award, the company reaffirms its commitment to being more than just a workplace, but a space where dreams are realized and potentials are nurtured.”

Kuna reaffirmed the group’s dedication towards fostering a milieu where growth, innovation and empathy are at the forefront. He foresees online payment adoption in rural areas as a part of Commerce.Asia’s next strategic move.

This accolade indeed marks a significant milestone for Commerce.Asia, cementing its reputation as a nurturing employer and a leader in the e-commerce space.

Indeed, the journey ahead for the Commerce.Asia Group of Companies looks promising, with plans to further revolutionise the e-commerce landscape in Malaysia and beyond.
