KUALA LUMPUR: UEM Sunrise Bhd has named Anwar Syahrin Abdul Ajib as its new managing director and chief executive officer (CEO), effective September 1.
Anwar was formerly MMC Corp Bhd’s chief financial officer and group head of ports and logistics, a position he assumed in 2008.
UEM Group Bhd managing director and CEO Datuk Izzaddin Idris said Anwar will provide a unique and different perspective to UEM Sunrise’s operations as well as the energy to propel UEM Sunrise and its employees to future success.
“He has the qualities we were looking for in our search and is certainly qualified to lead UEM Sunrise,” Izzaddin said in a statement.
He added that Anwar’s selection came after a comprehensive review and assessment of internal and external candidates led by a special committee set-up by the board of UEM Sunrise.
