DATUK MAZNAH PROFILE
Datuk Maznah Hamid
Datuk Maznah is the Securiforce Group Executive Chairman. She established and steered Securiforce from an unknown entity 27 years ago, to become the largest Security provider in Malaysia, successfully rising over more than a hundred other competitive companies of a similar nature. She started her business with merely RM5000 from her savings compared to other companies of similar nature that began with capitals between RM500000 to RM1milion. She now heads nearly 50 branches with employees reaching to almost 5000, hundreds of firearms and numerous armoured vehicles. The services are not only limited to static guard but also spans to logistic, cash-in-transit, cash management, high tech cargo management, armoured trucking service, as well as numerous other services. Securiforce provides a complete and total security package,
pioneering the concept of ‘total security’As a result of her sheer dedication and management ability, Securiforce has now developed and diversified into many subsidiary companies, thriving from strength to strength.
One such example is Danau Lumayan, a Property Development Company situated at Bandar Tun Razak, Cheras. Danau Lumayan has signed a Privatised Agreement with Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur to develop a parcel of Land situated at Bandar Tun Razak. Danau Lumayan builds and sells exclusive condominiums and penthouses.
Securiforce, in its continuing effort to become a fully integrated security and total solutions provider to meet customer needs, has established Securiforce Logistics, a sea and air freight forwarding service with branches in Singapore, Bangkok, China, Korea, Turkey and Germany.
The most incredible and interesting part in Datuk Maznah’s success story is that all her companies were established and progressively growing without any aid from the banking institutions. This has gained her much admiration and respect from peers as well as competitors. Her philosophy of success and achievement can be seen in her belief that “the main capital in business is yourself”.
She carries the principle of “we should produce a workload more than what we are paid for, as in the end, we will be rewarded much more than what we have done”. This principle has lead to major successes in her business career.
For her outstanding leadership qualities and distinguished entrepreneurship, she was invited to introduce the motivational programme at TV3 in 1990, where she was made Motivational Counsellor and Success Counsellor at both RTM and TV3. Hence, we quite often hear her familiar voice over the radio, and see her appearances on television.
She was also a Motivational Counsellor of Human Development, Business Development and a Success Counsellor at several institutes of higher learning. Her endurance, ’guts feeling’, ’persistency’ and ‘sustaining power’ become her most prized asset. She continuously tries to instill those strengths through her ”ZERO TO HERO” seminar and ”AWAKEN THE SPIRIT OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP/INTRAPRENEURSHIP”. Through this seminar, she hopes to awaken and empower the entrepreneurship spirit within every individual.
Due to her deep interest in human development, she created MMC, Maznah Motivational Centre, which conducts seminars on business and human development.
She had also published a book entitled “MOTIVASI MEMBURUKEJAYAAN” (3K) in Malay and Mandarin, based on her principles, practices and experiences, in her effort to strive for excellent, powerful results. The English version for the 3K book will be published soon.
