KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airlines (MAS) announced two appointments to its senior management team on Tuesday.

Azhari Mohd Dahlan, a highly experienced engineering professional with a sound knowledge of the aviation industry, joins MAS Aerospace Engineering (MAE) as chief executive officer effective Feb 1, 2012.

He re-joins the group (where he had served from 1981-1995) following his earlier stints in AirAsia Bhd and Transmile Engineering.

Meanwhile, the current head of human capital, Raja Azura Raja Mahayuddin, will be leaving MAS by the middle of next month.

She will be succeeded by Zahrah Zaid, who will take on the position of executive vice-president of human capital effective Feb 8, 2012.

Zahrah's 20-year career in human resources spans the Asia-Pacific and Europe, in Sime Darby, British American Tobacco and Danone Group.

Her most recent position was director, learning and development Asia-Pacific at Danone Asia Pte Ltd.

“We look forward to Azhari's proven visionary and strategic leadership capabilities to bring MAE to greater heights by developing and translating strategies into maximum results,” MAS Group chief executive officer Ahmad Jauhari Yahya said in a statement Tuesday.

“Likewise, Zaharah is tasked to set new benchmarks for MAS' human capital to energise our whole workforce towards higher levels of accomplishment as we implement our business plan.” - Bernama
