KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Noor Ehsanuddin Mohd Harun Narrashid, who stepped down as director of Felda Investment Corp Sdn Bhd’s listed unit Encorp Bhd last week, resigned as Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd (FGV) director on Thursday.

In a filing with Bursa Malaysia, the agri-business giant said the 53-year-old Kota Tinggi MP resigned due to “professional and personal reasons.”

Noor Ehsanuddin was appointed to the FGV board on July 16, 2013.

He is also a director at Felda’s sugar refining subsidiary MSM Malaysia Holdings Bhd. There was no announcement made by MSM to the exchange on Thursday.

It was reported that he, along with Datuk Dr Omar Salim, had expressed his intention to resign but newly-appointed FGV acting chairman Tan Sri Dr Sulaiman Mahbob said last month that he personally requested all FGV board members to stay on.

On July 12, FGV added three new board members - Felda acting director-general Ab Ghani Mohd Ali, Datuk Abu Bakar Harun and Datuk Muzzammil Mohd Nor . 

This was followed by the appointment of Datuk Khairil Anuar Aziz as the officer-in-charge on July 20 to take over the duties and responsibilities of the group president/chief executive officer.
