KUALA LUMPUR: A Chinese University of Hong Kong professor and a senior Tencent Holding Co Ltd executive are among three new members of Khazanah Nasional Bhd’s board.
The government investment fund today said it had appointed Professor Xiao’ou Tang and Tencent senior executive vice president and chairman of group marketing and global branding Lau Seng Yee as its directors.
They were joined by Toh Puan Azian Mohd Aziz, who is head of advisory division of the Attorney General’s Chambers.
“Khazanah welcomed the new members at its board meeting today, and looks forward to continue working closely with the board led by our chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, in delivering on our mandate as the sovereign wealth fund of Malaysia,” Khazanah said in a statement.
The new members of the board will join Minister of Economic Affairs Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali, former Petronas chairman Tan Sri Mohd Hassan Marican, Bank Negara Malaysia former deputy governor Dr Sukhdave Singh and former Securities Commission executive director Goh Ching Yin, who were appointed in July last year, following the change in government.
