New EPF CEO - Career Professional, But Is That Enough?

New EPF CEO - Career Professional, But Is That Enough?

Starting March 1st, the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) will have a new CEO, outgoing TNB CEO Datuk Seri Amir Hamzah Azizan.

This once again brings to mind questions around leadership for Government Linked Companies (GLC) and Government Linked Investment Companies (GLIC), and the process and transparency of these decisions, especially considering there are public stakeholders.

The Morning Run speaks to long-time business journalist P. Gunasegaram for his initial thoughts on Amir Hamzah's appointment and what he brings to the EPF, concerns surrounding the GLC and GLIC appointment process, as well as a look at Tunku Alizakri Alias' tenure at EPF.
