KUALA LUMPUR: Toll highway operator PLUS Malaysia Bhd has appointed Datuk Azman Ismail (pic) as managing director and chief executive officer effective Jan 1, 2017.

Azman, who has a bachelor of science in Chemical Engineering from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, was formerly managing director of Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd and general manager of retail business overseeing Shell’s petroleum retailing in Malaysia and Brunei – two positions he held concurrently.

“Datuk Azman has had a distinguished 30-year career at Shell where he held several key roles including those in operations, retail as well as finance, and recorded numerous achievements.
