Another feather in IRIS' cap as Datuk Tan Say Jim was recently bestowed the Innovation Award by The Peak magazine. As the exclusive publication celebrated its 25th Anniversary, it recognised prominent industry captains who are critical to job creation, economic development, technological advancements and improving quality of life in Malaysia.

Founded over two decades ago by Datuk Tan, Dato Tony and Chas Yap, IRIS started off with innovations for national security documents. Under Datuk Tan's innovative and visionary leadership, IRIS has strategically diversified to eight (8) business divisions - Trusted Identification, Payment & Transportation, Food & Agro technology, Renewable Energy, Sustainable Development, Printing & Packaging, Industrialised Building Systems (IBS) and Education - each committed to pursuing growth opportunities worldwide.

Datuk Tan stood proud alongside fellow award recipients and prominent business leaders such as Tan Sri (Dr) Francis Yeoh of YTL Corp Bhd, Tan Sri Dato' Seri Tony Fernandes of AirAsia Bhd, and Tan Sri Dato' Seri Dr Jeffrey Cheah of Sunway Group, and dedicated the award to all his colleagues at IRIS.
