KUALA LUMPUR (March 1): Tan Sri Mohammed Nor Yusof is stepping down as chairman of Malaysia Aviation Group (MAG), the holding company of Malaysia Airlines Bhd, effective immediately, after serving for eight years.

MAG said it will be announcing Mohammed Nor’s replacement in due course.

The former Securities Commission executive chairman joined Malaysian Airline System Bhd in February 2001 as managing director. He left the national airline in March 2004 and was appointed chairman in 2011. 

Mohammed Nor was appointed as chairman of Lembaga Tabung Haji in July last year, amid changes in top management of statutory bodies and government linked companies after the 14th general election.

“Tan Sri Mohammed Nor has been an important advisor to all of us at MAG and an essential part of our transformation," MAG and Malaysia Airlines chief executive officer Izham Ismail said in a statement today.

"On a personal level, he has been a great mentor and taught me so much of what I know today. His dedication and loyalty to the national airline has been exemplary. He will always be a part of the MH family and we wish him much success in his next role," he added.
