KUALA LUMPUR: Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd’s (FGV) recently-appointed chairman Datuk Wira Azhar Abdul Hamid has also assumed the chairmanship of Felda’s sugar refining subsidiary MSM Malaysia Holdings Bhd.

In a filing with Bursa Malaysia, MSM Malaysia said its board of directors approved the appointment of the former Malakoff Corp Bhd group managing director today (Tuesday).

Azhar became FGV chairman effective Sept 8.

Following Azhar’s latest appointment, Datuk Rosini Abd Samad ceased to be MSM’s acting chairman but continues to be an MSM director.

Rosini had been named acting chairman on June 19, when Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad resigned as chairman of both MSM Malaysia and FGV.

MSM Malaysia also announced today the resignation of Datuk Noor Ehsanuddin Mohd Harun Narrashid “due to professional and personal reasons.”

Noor Ehsanuddin last month stepped down as director of FGV and  of Felda Investment Corp Sdn Bhd’s listed unit Encorp Bhd.
