“I think this is the biggest thing that has happened to me. It's always very rare for people to be immortalized while they're still alive. It's a big honour that I live to see this. Because of this particular OMIS award in my honor, both in life and the afterlife, I'll be part of making it sustainable. This is going to go into my will and my choice.”

“This is something that should be encouraged. You could be on the 21st floor of your corporate headquarters, if you don't have the supply chain and your logistics right, you're not going to be able to achieve anything. So a platform like this that gives the opportunity to recognize, appreciate and celebrate everyone that is a part of the port and shipping ecosystem, I think it's a good thing.”

Engr. Isreal Obadan President, Association of Marine Engineers & Surveyors (AMES)

“There are some awards that I don't bother about. But with the type of reputation OMIS has acquired over the years, I really appreciate this. I expect them to keep it up and keep encouraging maritime practitioners.”
