KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 1): Export-Import Bank of Malaysia Bhd (EXIM Bank) has appointed former Malaysia Investment Development Authority (MIDA) chief executive officer (CEO) Datuk Azman Mahmud as its chairman effective immediately.
Azman succeeds Datuk Dr Feizal Mustapha, who ended his term with the bank earlier this year. Feizal had held the position since his appointment on April 9, 2019.
“Having served in MIDA for over three decades with his final years donning the hat of CEO, Azman brings with him a wealth of experience especially in driving investments and potential business opportunities, with a keen focus on leading performance-driven and result-oriented teams,” EXIM Bank said in a statement on Friday.
EXIM Bank said Azman’s collaborative leadership within the corporate ecosystem and rich investment industry know-how will place him in good stead to guide the bank in the right direction, as it fulfils its mandate as the preferred financier and advisor of global businesses.
Azman also chairs the boards of Panasonic Manufacturing Malaysia Bhd, Privasia Technology Bhd, SME Aerospace Sdn Bhd and UPM Holdings Sdn Bhd. He also holds various other board positions in GDEX Bhd and Kulim Technology Park Corp.
