invest Penang GM tipped to head PDC Properties

INVESTPENANG general manager Wan Zailena Noordin is tipped to replace Osman Kallahan as the next head of PDC Properties Sdn Bhd, the property development arm of Penang Development Corp (PDC).

It is understood that chief executive officer (CEO) Osman's contract, which ends this month, has not been renewed.

Sources told Business Times that Wan Zailena is tipped to take over, but as managing director.

It is not known if Wan Zailena will relinquish her post at investPenang, where she had served as CEO and then resigned. She rejoined investPenang as its general manager last year.

Osman has more than a decade of property development experience under his belt when he was hired to helm the company during its inception.

Incorporated in 2005 as a private limited company and wholly-owned by corporation, PDC Properties has been actively playing the role of a major property developer of high-end properties to low-cost housing, condominiums, offices and shop lots.

On Penang island, its projects include the sea-fronting Bayan Mutiara, Ixora Heights and Halaman Kenanga at Sungai Nibong.

PDC Properties' Bandar Cassia development at Batu Kawan on the mainland is strategically located close to the landing point of the second Penang bridge.

A restructuring exercise at the PDC in 2004 saw the emergence of PDC Properties, which is understood to be making higher profits.

In April this year, PDC appointed former banker Julian Candiah as its deputy general manager, in a bid to help Penang woo more investors to its shores.
