KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 8 (Bernama) — Export-Import Bank of Malaysia Bhd (EXIM Bank) has appointed Datuk Charon Wardini Mokhzani as chairman effective today.
In a statement today, the bank said Charon succeeds Datuk Azman Mahmud, whose term ended late last year.
The bank’s president and chief executive officer Arshad Ismail said Charon’s extensive experience will be an invaluable asset as the bank navigates the dynamic business landscape.
“We look forward to collaborating with Datuk Charon to leverage his expertise, not only in steering our company to new heights but also enhancing the role of EXIM Bank Malaysia as a development finance institution,” Arshad said in the statement.
Charon was most recently Malaysian Industrial Development Finance Bhd group managing director. Other leadership roles he held include Khazanah Research Institute’s founding chief executive officer, Khazanah Nasional executive director, CIMB Group deputy CEO and CIMB Investment Bank CEO.
He was also at one time CIMB-Principal Asset Management Bhd (now Principal Asset Management Bhd) chairman and Zaid Ibrahim & Co managing partner. He currently serves on the boards of Yayasan Tuanku Fauziah, Yayasan Tuanku Syed Putra Perlis, and the Kuala Lumpur Business Club, and was on the board of Universiti Putra Malaysia.
Charon is a Chartered Banker and a Fellow of the Asian Institute of Chartered Bankers, a non-practicing barrister of the Middle Temple, and an advocate and solicitor of the High Court of Malaya.
“His collaborative leadership and guidance within the corporate and commercial ecosystem and rich investment industry know-how will surely place him in good stead to guide the bank in the right direction, as it fulfils the mandate given to it by the government,” the bank said.
