KUALA LUMPUR: The secretary general of Treasury, Datuk Dr Mohd Irwan Serigar Abdullah has joined Perbadanan Insurans Deposit Malaysia's (PIDM) board of directors.

PIDM said on Thursday he replaces Tan Sri Dr Wan Abdul Aziz Wan Abdullah, the former secretary general of the Treasury, who recently retired after 37 years in the civil service.

Irwan had served in the government for more than 30 years in various capacities.

PIDM said Irwan also serves as a board member of the Employees Provident Fund (EPF), the Securities Commission (SC), the Suruhanjaya Pengangkutan Awam Darat (SPAD), the Suruhanjaya Koperasi Malaysia (SKM) and the International Islamic University of Malaysia.

PIDM chairman Tan Sri Dr Abdul Samad Alias said the board of directors and management looked forward to his contribution to the board deliberations.

"I am confident that PIDM will benefit greatly from his extensive public sector experience," he said.

Irwan holds a PhD in Economics from the International Islamic University of Malaysia. He also received his Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree in demography from the University of Malaya and a Masters of Science in energy management and policy from the University of Pennsylvania, US.

With this recent appointment, the members of the board of directors of PIDM are Tan Sri Dr Abdul Samad Alias (chairman); Tan Sri Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz (governor of Bank Negara Malaysia); Datuk Dr Mohd Irwan Serigar Abdullah (secretary general of the Treasury).

The members include Datuk Dr Rahamat Bivi Yusoff; Datuk Halipah Esa; George Anthony David Dass; Lim Tian Huat; Alex Foong Soo Hah and Mohamad Abdul Halim Ahmad.
