CNM (Corporate Networking Malaysia) CEO Series Talk #2. The Importance of Networking & Communication as a Tool for Professionals Today - The PKT Story. Speaker: Dato’ Michael B.Y. Tio, Group Chief Executive & Managing Director of PKT Logistics Group.

It was the entrepreneurial gene that Dato’ Michael Tio carries down from his father who founded PKT Logistics Group way back in 1974. As a student in London he used to be wheeling and dealing with exporting luxury cars back to Malaysia to be sold as re-conditioned cars.

With more than 10 years of experience and his lucrative income in his business, Dato’ Michael finally calls it quits in exporting cars and returned to Malaysia to join his family business which he quotes by saying “I came back to do National Service”.

 In 1996, he took the front role of the company to turn the company around. Today PKT proudly sits on a 27 acres facility in Shah Alam with 2 state-of-the-art warehouse The Ship & The Waves. The last phase of this facility will be called The Light House and all three warehouses will be known as the One Logistics Hub.

Well known for his generosity of giving to others, he says money is not everything to him simple because his personal outlook in life is “Happiness is derived from seeing others happy”.
