KUALA LUMPUR: Plantation firm TDM Bhd said chief executive officer Zainal Abidin Shariff has resigned, citing disagreement with his chairman over issues involving the company's palm oil trading activities.
Zainal tendered his resignation letter on Thursday with immediate effect, the company told Bursa Malaysia in a filing today.
