YM Tunku Tan Sri Imran ibni Al-Marhum Tuanku Jaafar has been involved in sports and sport administration for many decades. Forgotten by many, Tunku Tan Sri Imran was a national suqash champion in 1973.
Tunku Tan Sri Imran served as the President of the Olympic Council of Malaysia from 1998 to 2018 and now is the Honorary Life President of the OCM.
Due to his involvement in sports administration, Tunku Tan Sri Imran is probably the most experienced person in terms of number of years and involvements in sport. Highly respected by the sporting community within Malaysia and worldwide, Tunku Tan Sri Imran.
Tunku Tan Sri Imran has been the Chairman of SportExcel since day 1. In fact, SportExcel was the brainchild of Tunku Tan Sri Imran and some of his close friends. Under his leadership, SportExcel has managed to create multiple champions in the international level, namely the legendary G.O.A.T Dato Nicol David, Shalin Zulkifli, Ben Leong, Gavin Green and many others.
Mr Sivanandan Chinadurai has been the SportExcel Executive Director since 2011.
An avid sports person himself, Mr Siva’s has been involved in sports administration for various organizations for many year prior to his appointment at SportExcel. Among others, Mr Siva has served as the Secretary for the Cricket Association of Malaysia and the Squash Association of Malaysia.
Those who know him will refer him as Cikgu Siva, as he was a teaching profesional in Sg Petani Kedah. Some of his student has also children playing in SportExcel events.
