“A Journey With Friends”
JTJB celebrated an important milestone by turning 20 on the 1st of February, at the Conrad International Centennial Hotel, Singapore. This celebration was graced aptly by the Guest of Honour Mrs. Lim Hwee Hwa, Minister of State for Transport and Finance. Guests steamed in at about 6.30pm for pre-dinner cocktails, followed by a four-course dinner spread, which was accompanied by the fine music of The JM Jazz Quartet.
The event was attended by Captains of the Maritime Industry, Ambassadors and Government Officials. As part of the celebration, JTJB unveiled its revised corporate identity, a new look with the same commitment, a change in form and style to journey with confidence.
This new look also depicts a new vigour to think outside the box. The horizontal and vertical lines of the new logo depict strong foundation and the potential for growth, and the intersection of the two lines, JTJB’s commitment to personalized service.
We were also thrilled to welcome a special performance by Jeremy Monteiro, jazz virtuoso and Cultural Medallion award winner. Jeremy composed a song for JTJB’s 20 year journey with friends, entitled “Journey”, a musical interpretation of JTJB’s 20 years. And in keeping with the musical magic and mood of Jeremy Monteiro’s jazz, JTJB commissioned a special release CD for all guests.
That evening, JTJB recognized the dedication and commitment of Mr Koh Chin Kiang, who had 20 years of service helping to create the JTJB we see today. Managing director, Dato Jude P Benny, also acknowledged colleagues who had worked hard with him along the years, and thanked the guests for JTJB’s success over the past 20 years.
