A new chapter

Mohammad A Baker, deputy chairman and CEO, GMG, said: “We started a new chapter of expansion by establishing GMG on the global marketplace a couple of years ago. We have taken a step forward to establish our new Asian headquarters in Malaysia, enabling GMG to capitalice on the burgeoning sports retail industry in Asia. We have designed an aggressive roadmap for our brands in this region, and this move will also allow us to serve our Southeast Asian customers better, closer to home,” added Baker.

The company’s sprawling 28,000 square foot Asian headquarters located in, The Exchange 106 Tower, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, will oversee regional operations and prove to be a catalyst for further expansion and growth. Currently, GMG employs 1,200 people across Asia.

Ongoing enhancement

The conglomerate also recently unveiled a new brand identity for RSH, which places the community at its core, redefining sport for all by being real, relevant, and fun.

The newly revamped RSH brand aims to help customers from all walks of life “find their rhythm” through sport. The unveiling took place at the launch of a new RSH store at Tropicana Gardens Mall in Petaling Jaya, outside of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The GMG Sports division comprises a diversified portfolio of homegrown concepts and international powerhouse brands such as Nike, Columbia, Jordan, The North Face, Timberland, Vans, and more. GMG Sports’ successful homegrown concepts include Sun & Sand Sports, Dropkick, Nu Athlete, Pedaliere and Basketbolista.
