Encik Mohd Shahazwan bin Mohd Harris has been appointed as a Non Independent and Non Executive Director of MAS effective today, 17 June 2013.
He is 41 years old and currently an Executive Director in the Investments Division of Khazanah Nasional Berhad, overseeing the Aviation sector. Hopefully he was not one of the key players in the infamous MAS-AirAsia share swap that was inked on 8th August 2011 and reversed eight months later by YAB PM.
Prior to joining Khazanah in 2005, he was Senior Vice President, Investments, at Boston Consulting Group. Earlier, he worked at PA Consulting and Tenaga Nasional Berhad. He is also the director of UEM Group, Fomema Sdn Bhd. He is also a director of Camco South East Asia where Khazanah has a 40% stake in it. He seems to be very involved in renewable energy for the past few years.
The Voice, a publication in MAS, welcomes Encik Shahazwan to Malaysia Airlines! “He has Masters and Bachelors degrees from two acclaimed universities in the UK, the field of Mechanical Engineering and also holds an MBA from the prestigious MIT Sloan School of Management. We are certain that his expertise and experience will be valuable to the Board of Directors in steering Malaysia Airlines to success” said The Voice.
