Sadly, the president of the Malaysian Swimming Pool Association (MSPA), Chew Soo Ngee, has passed away.
He was the founding president and driving force behind the association, and the founder and managing director of Kuala Lumpur based swimming pool construction company, Asiapools.
A highly respected and very well liked member of the South East Asian swimming pool community, he worked tirelessly to professionalise the local industry through skills development, lobbying and networking.
He was also well known to attendees of the SPLASH! trade shows, both on the Gold Coast and in Singapore.
He passed away after an unexpected massive brain haemorrhage. He was 65.
SPLASH! offers sincere condolences to his family and friends.
