KUALA LUMPUR: TELEKOM MALAYSIA BHD (TM) has appointed former Celcom Axiata Bhd senior executive Datuk Noor Kamarul Anuar Nuruddin as its new managing director and group chief executive officer (CEO).
"We look forward to working with him and I am confident that with his wealth of experience, expertise and industry know-how, Noor Kamarul is fully capable to take TM forward into the future and explore new frontiers of growth," chairman Rosli Man said in a statement today.
TM has been without a permanent group CEO for the last one-year after Datuk Seri Mohammed Shazalli Ramly left the company in June last year.
The post was held by former acting group CEO Datuk Bazlan Osman for three months before his abrupt departure in November.
Bazlan was replaced by chief operating officer (COO) Imri Mokhtar, who also assumed the role of acting group CEO.
"Imri will resume his role as the COO to drive the business operations of unifi, TM One, TM Global and information technology & network technology (IT&NT) to better serve our customers,” Rosli said.
Noor Kamarul, 60, has 34 years experience in managing telecommunication networks and services in Malaysia and Indonesia focusing on fixed network, mobile network and mobile broadband services.
"We will continue with our ongoing transformation journey and execute the strategic initiatives planned to assist TM in navigating through the current challenges and position us in a more resilient, competitive and sustainable footing,” Rosli said.
