Antony, 40, son of the late Tan Sri Alex Lee, was elected during the WISPA Annual General Meeting which was held in Singapore on 8 August 2009.
At the meeting, Antony who is the CEO of AIG-Global Services Malaysia Sdn Bhd, was also re-elected to serve as board member of WISPA, a recognition to his leadership qualities and also his contribution to squash. He was appointed to the board in May 2007.
AIG Global Services is MSC Status Company that was set up in 1998 as a joint venture between AIG and Software International. The company began by providing Information Technology services for AIG's worldewide operations from Kuala Lumpur.
Antony joined AIG-Software International in January 2004 and subsequently was made CEO in March 2005. Prior to this, Antony was a senior architecht at Llewenlyn-Davis, a large UK based practice, where he worked on major hospital and airport projects including University College London Hospital (UK) and BBC Headquarters Projects in London.
Antony graduated from University College London in UK with a Bachelor of Science degree. In, addition he holds a Diploma in Architecture from the same University.
He served as Vice President of SRAM from 2004-2006 as well as Chairman of Squash Racquets Association of Federal Territory from 2005-2006.
At the 2006 SRAM elections, affiliates who wanted to see a change in the national body, nominated Antony to challenge the incumbent President Dato' A. Sani Karim. Sani won, mostly with the backing of close friend and Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) President, Tunku Imran Tuanku Jaafar.
According to a source, Tunku Imran also covinced Sani to change his stand from wanting a change to maintaining status quo during the last OCM elections.
As a result of that, said the source again, Sani has been given an indication that he would be given the OCM Deputy President's post and eventually the number one position.
It surely is good to see another Malaysian contributing to sports at the world scene. Maybe someday Antony would consider contesting a post in OCM, to carry on his father's desire to improve the image of the olympic body.
Alex Lee was passionately involved in squash and when he was the President, Malaysia became of force in the sport with two world junior champions - Nicol Ann David and Ong Beng Hee.
Tan Sri Alex was Vice President of OCM. He died during a scuba diving accident in Papua New Guinea on 31 October 1999.
