World Match Racing Tour President and Monsoon Cup Race Advisor, Peter Gilmour, has been presented with The BrandLaureate Brand Icon Leadership Award 2011 by the Asia Pacific Brands Foundation (APBF).

The BrandLaureate Brand Icon Leadership Awards 2011 were launched by the APBF to honour the most outstanding icons in Malaysia and around the world. The recipients of this award were selected by a judging committee who scrutinised their career track record, achievements, and contribution to the industry and nation.

Gilmour was instrumental in making the Monsoon Cup, the final leg of the World Match Racing Tour, a reality in 2005 and has since been one of the driving forces to have developed it into Malaysia’s second biggest annual sporting event.

The award was previously only given to brands and corporations however Gilmour was awarded the accolade of Brand Icon for his 'inspiration, intelligence, ideas, innovation and imagination,' all of which have helped bring huge change to Kuala Terrenganu in Malaysia where the Monsoon Cup is held and also to developing the sport of sailing in the country.

Speaking about the award, Peter Gilmour said: 'I am honoured to receive this award in acknowledgement of the contributions I have made to Malaysia. It has been a great experience working with the people of Malaysia and especially Terengganu. I would like to thank former Malaysia Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi for his vision and for giving me the opportunity to add to the accolades of this great nation.'

The four-time World Match Racing Champion added: 'I would like to dedicate this award to the organisers of the Monsoon Cup, T-Best Events, who have proven themselves as the leading sports event management company in Malaysia. Their commitment and capabilities in organising a major international sports event has exceeded my expectations.'

'As Race Advisor to the Monsoon Cup, I will ensure that the event keeps improving and continues to hog the limelight by offering the best sailing competition and environment the sport has to offer.'
