KUALA LUMPUR: Export-Import Bank of Malaysia Bhd (Exim Bank) has appointed Datuk Azman Mahmud as the new chairman, effective today.
In a statement, EXIM Bank said Azman would succeed Datuk Dr Feizal Mustapha, who ended his term with the bank earlier this year.
Exim Bank said Azman's appointment to the board is timely to continue and steer the bank in the right direction, backed by his vast experience in the corporate investment, finance and advisory fields.
Azman was the former Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) chief executive officer and a seasoned corporate figure ideal to helm the board of Exim Bank.
