Malaysian Investor Relations Association MIRA

Malaysian Investor Relations Association (MIRA) is a company established by Bursa Malaysia to promote the good practice of investor relations by public listed companies.

Interview With Dato' Liaw Choon Liang, President / Chief Executive Officer Of Focus Point Holdings Berhad

Dato' Liaw Choon Liang, President/Chief Executive Officer of Focus Point Holdings Berhad (Focus Point) shares with us his strategies of leading Focus Point from a single outlet in Muar, Johor back in 1989 to an eyewear retail chain with 165 outlets throughout the country now, and ultimately to be the leading vision care provider in Asia.

Being in the fast paced retail industry, how do you ensure Focus Point remains resilient and maintains its position as the market leader?

Our ability to continuously innovate and deliver the needs and wants of consumers today remains one of our key strengths. Besides carrying the widest range and brands of eyewear in the market, we constantly keep up to date with the latest technology and global trends available in the eye care and optical industry.

Focus Point is the first and only company to adopt the 'Franchise Business Model' (FBM) in the professional eye care industry in Malaysia. How did this come about and what are your onward plans in franchising?

The FBM enables us to improve our economies of scale and provides the key advantage of deriving incremental income while minimising capital expenditure in setting-up new outlets.

I also believe in the distribution of wealth and opportunities for rising young entrepreneurs. In my view, human resources are the most important assets in Focus Point, without whom, success would not have been within reach. By extending the FBM opportunities to our staff to operate a franchise with the full support of the management, it is our appreciation of their hard work and dedication.

We currently have 85 franchised outlets nationwide operating under the "Focus Point" brand name. Our latest venture overseas in Brunei is also through a FBM. The opportunity for us to expand through this method certainly looks bright.

Focus Point has recently signed a Memorandum of Collaboration with Perbadanan Nasional Berhad (PNS), which sets out a collaborative action plan by both parties in developing and promoting the Focus Point Franchise Programme to Bumiputera entrepreneurs.

What are your plans in spearheading Focus Point's growth strategy, following your listing on Bursa Malaysia last year?

As we look forward to expanding our market, we need to take the initiative to create more demand for our products as well as increase the size of the global optical market. While we position eyewear products as fashion accessories, we must at the same time diversify our product range by updating technologies and further enhancing our professionalism in the industry. We will continue to work towards expanding both in size as well as in quality.

As a market leader, we continue to innovate our business to meet consumer demands. Just after listing, we entered into another partnership with a world leading supplier of advanced optical materials, Hoya Optics from Japan.

We also have plans to expand overseas but timing and opportunity is crucial for such considerations. The recent opening of our first outlet in Brunei has been promising and we continue to study the opportunities in the region for growth.

I will confidently say that Focus Point is ready for new challenges as we step up our combined efforts; we are capable of providing eyewear users worldwide with top quality and highly innovative eyewear products and services.
