Ex-Petronas CEO joined Singapore GLC

Set aside non-bumi, the talented Malays also leaving Malaysia for greener pasture.

Hassan Merican, the one who transformed Petronas into a second most profitable company in the world has joined Singapore Power Limited (SP) in June as its Chairman.

I remember a reputed and caliber former Tenaga CEO (forget his name) also resigned after friction with UMNO cronies and joined foreign MNC.

Why brain drain?

Because UMNO appoints donkeys to run GLCs besides imposing racial policies in the public sector.

Petronas is in danger of going bust. It has squandered its tremendous reserves for a number of projects it had no business to be involved in. It owns Putrajaya, the administrative capital that is a drain on the public purse. It owns Proton, the F-1 motor racing circuit in Sepang, and a slew of companies and products that is far removed from its main product: petroleum. The US$1 billion sponsorship costs for the F-1 championship in Sepang and the Sauber Petronas F-1 racing team appears to matter more than the future of its 70 IT specialists. It owns the Petronas twin towers, forced on it by the government so the KLCC would show the world how developed a country Malaysia is. Its considerable funds are used to cover government shortfalls and other financial needs. The Petronas management will surely see red ink dominating its balance sheets after its unrestrained financial profligacy

That old man is adviser for Petronas.

Everyone knows Malaysia economy and government budget is solely depended on funds from Petronas. When Petronas balance sheet in red means the government also in deep shit.

Singapore has already taken countless top students from malaysia.
Now even malays are working in Singapore!

Samson says:

Kencana Petroleum better career option than Petronas.
Datuk Mokhzani Mahathir RM1.937 billion man even richer than his father Petronas adviser Dr M.
No wonder Hassan Merican out of petronas seeking greener pasture.
