Bursa Malaysia Appoints New Independent Non-Executive Directors

KUALA LUMPUR: Bursa Malaysia has appointed Redza Goh Aik Meng and Sharifatu Laila Syed Ali as independent non-executive directors effective March 27, 2024.

Bursa Malaysia chairman Tan Sri Abdul Wahid Omar said the two new appointments mark another deliberate effort in the exchange’s journey towards continually strengthening the board’s expertise and diversity.

Redza Goh brings extensive experience spanning 39 years in information technology (IT) and digitalisation, with a focus on driving business and organisational transformations.

He most recently served as digital and technology advisor for Dialog Bhd until February 2023.

Before this role, he was the vice president and group chief information officer of Petroliam Nasional Bhd, where he led significant digital and IT initiatives.

He spent the majority of his earlier corporate years at Accenture, before retiring as the managing director and chief executive officer of Accenture Malaysia in 2014 after 26 years of service.

Redza Goh graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Computation from the University of Manchester Institute of Science & Technology (UMIST).

Meanwhile, Sharifatu rejoins the Bursa Malaysia board with her wealth of experience in investment management and capital markets.

She was previously a public interest director and independent non-executive director of Bursa Malaysia from October 1, 2020, to August 16, 2023.

With a career that spans over 30 years, she has held key positions in notable Malaysian financial institutions, including roles at Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB), the Employees Provident Fund (EPF), and Lembaga Tabung Haji.

She was also the chief executive officer of ValueCap from 2002 until 2018.

Sharifatu graduated with BSc (Hons) in Science from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia and a Master of Business
Administration from the University of Malaya.

She has also completed the Advanced Management Programme at Harvard Business School. She is currently an independent non-executive director of YTL Corporation Bhd and a member of the investment committee of University of Malaya.

Bursa Malaysia chairman Tan Sri Abdul Wahid Omar said Redza Goh and  Sharifatu’s appointment as independent non-executive directors marks another deliberate effort in the exchange’s journey towards continually strengthening the board’s expertise and diversity as Bursa Malaysia progresses as a multi-asset exchange.

“Redza Goh’s illustrious career in IT and digital transformation will serve us well as the exchange deepens efforts to augment customer experience and achieve efficiencies through further digitalisation and new technologies.

“Equally, Sharifatu’s return enriches our board with her vast experience in investment management and capital markets.

“Her familiarity with Bursa Malaysia’s strategic priorities, combined with a fresh perspective from her recent experiences align perfectly with our intent to fulfil the exchange’s purpose.

“We are confident that a strong and committed board guides Bursa Malaysia to help move the exchange forward and into a stronger position as we navigate an increasingly competitive market landscape, propelling us towards innovation, sustainability, and capital market excellence.

“Together, we look forward to fulfilling our mission of creating opportunities and growing value for our wide-ranging stakeholders, the marketplace and the nation,” Abdul Wahid said.

He also acknowledged Chong Chye Neo’s contribution as she retired from the board.

“We thank Chong for her service and guidance to Bursa Malaysia. She has been an invaluable member of the board, and we
wish her all the best in her future endeavours,” Abdul Wahid said.

Chong retired as an independent non-executive director effective March 27, 2024, after serving Bursa Malaysia for over five years since December 21, 2018.
