In a relatively short time, EpiCentre has successfully grown from a local brand name to one that is recognised regionally. And the driving force behind this soaring success is Mr Jimmy Fong, co-founder, Chairman and CEO of EpiCentre Holdings.
Riding on the phenomenal success of Apple products, CEO Jimmy Fong, has managed to transform an otherwise simple monotonous shopping transaction into an exceptional buying experience for both new and existing Apple customers.
By offering a comprehensive suite of Apple and Apple-related products, and a full range of pre- and post-sale services, EpiCentre serves as a one-stop digital lifestyle store to its customers.
A man of vision, Mr Jimmy Fong is forging an even greater brand presence for EpiCentre by expanding into regional markets like Malaysia, China as well as more growing economies in the region.
