PNB CEO’s exit related to harassments

In a news report by Focus Malaysia, Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) chief executive officer, Jalil Rasheed said in an email to his staff that he had faced a range of harassments during his tenure at the asset manager.

The harassments included email and LinkedIn profile hacks and calls from several unknown numbers. “This made me increasingly worry for the wellbeing of my family,” he said.

Rasheed had relocated back to KL from Singapore with his family upon his appointment and has expressed disappointment in regards to the abrupt end to his tenure.

The past nine months have been rewarding for me,” he said.

During his tenure, Rasheed had introduced flexible work arrangement which included a permanent work-from-home option as well as a 2-year strategic plan called Focus 4.

Khazanah Nasional Bhd executive director Ahmad Zulqarnain Onn and Maybank group president and CEO Abdul Farid Alias are two likely candidates reported to be potential replacements.
