KUALA LUMPUR –Nov. 16, 2017: Sime Darby Berhad will have a new group chief executive officer in Jeffri Salim Davidson, alongside a new chairman, board members and senior management from December 1.
This will follow the listing of its plantation and property units as separate entities on November 30, a process that would streamline the group’s businesses.
Its new chairman will be Tan Sri Wan Abdul Aziz Wan Abdullah.
Current chairman Tan Sri Abdul Ghani Othma described this as a distinguished line up of individuals who would be able to take the company forward to the next level.
“The board and senior management have between them years of experience and expertise necessary to take the trading and logistics businesses to the next level,” Ghani said in a statement.
The leaner Sime Darby will focus mainly on its trading businesses in the motor and heavy equipment sectors, besides its involvement in other key growth sectors. — Bernama
