Hisham’s appointment allows for greater focus on building Khazanah’s capabilities as an investment institution and creating new capacity and competencies, especially to meet the company’s value creation and impact goals.

Khazanah managing director Datuk Amirul Feisal Wan Zahir said the agency is confident that Hisham’s vast experience and knowledge will be an asset to Khazanah’s ongoing efforts to gear up the organisation to build the required capacity and institutionalise talent development, which is part of the overall strategy for developing a winning team.

“This, along with our long-term strategy of Advancing Malaysia, would further allow us to strengthen our position in facing the challenging global market condition,” he said in a statement.

Hisham joined Khazanah in April 2011 from Sime Darby Bhd.
