National squash player Sivasangari Subramaniam is the latest addition to CIMB Group Holdings Bhd (CIMB) list of sports ambassadors. Chief executive officer of group consumer and digital banking Effendy Shahul Hamid said that CIMB is steadfast in its efforts to nurture talent and will provide comprehensive support to athletes at various levels of their development. The bank has been awarding sponsorships to local athletes for the past few years. Its roster of sponsored sports athletes include track cyclist Datuk Azizulhasni Awang and golfer Ervin Chang who was awarded a sponsorship just last month. “We are eager to play a role in the development of Malaysia’s sports industry in an effort to elevate our national status as a serious contender in squash especially in view of the inclusion of squash in the Los Angeles Olympics games in 2028,” said Effendy. CIMB has been instrumental in Sivasangari’s progress after she joined the CIMB junior squash development programme in 2009. The national squash player was also a recipient of CIMB’s Squash Academic Scholarship by the CIMB Foundation.
