Kinergy Advancement Appoints Dr Amanda, Jonathan Wu As Directors

KUALA LUMPUR: Kinergy Advancement Bhd (KAB) has appointed Ts Dr Amanda Lee Sean Peik as an independent non-executive director and Jonathan Wu Jo-Han as an executive director.

With Dr Amanda’s inclusion, KAB’s board now comprises three female directors, underscoring the company’s dedication to fostering gender diversity and inclusive leadership.

This commitment extends the strategic direction set by Datuk Dr Ong Peng Su’s appointment as chairman of KAB in April 2021.

Dr Ong’s extensive experience in the power industry and his vision for KAB’s growth in green energy solutions have been instrumental in steering the company towards its current focus on sustainable energy solutions (SES).

These strategic appointments strengthen KAB’s technical expertise in the sustainable energy and engineering sector while encouraging a positive outlook to fuel the company’s strategic growth and ambition.

Dr Amanda holds a PhD in civil engineering from the University of Nottingham (Malaysia Campus) and a Bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the National University of Malaysia (UKM).

Her wealth of experience in hydrology and water resources engineering, with a notable focus on climate change impacts and flood forecasting, will be instrumental in guiding KAB’s hydropower and water resource management projects.

Her expertise will undoubtedly be a valuable asset to KAB as KAB embarks on more hydropower projects.

Jonathan joined the company in August 2018 and has been instrumental in driving KAB’s expansion into sustainable energy, working closely with the executive deputy chairman and group managing director Datuk Lai Keng Onn.

His strategic leadership in managing operations and securing key deals have significantly contributed to KAB’s growth.

Having served as director for KAB subsidiaries and chief operating officer for the SES segment since 2023, Jonathan’s promotion to executive director underscores his invaluable contributions to the organisation’s success.

His experience will continue to be crucial in driving KAB’s future growth.

These strategic appointments are pivotal as KAB continues to expand its sustainable energy solutions portfolio.

Dr Amanda’s expertise in hydropower and water resource management projects will be instrumental in furthering KAB’s growth in these areas.

“We welcome Dr Amanda and Jonathan to our board. As we actively expand our energy portfolio, we are thrilled to boast a board comprising a wide range of experts who offer different perspectives to enrich our decision-making processes.

“Their decision to join the board reflects mutual trust and underscores our shared values and vision, driving forward our sustainable energy development in the ASEAN region and globally,” Lai said.
