Gamuda appoints Rashdan as deputy group MD

Gamuda Bhd has appointed Mohammed Rashdan Yusof (picture) as deputy group MD effective May 1, 2018.

The 47-year-old former ED (Investments) at Khazanah Nasional Bhd and CEO of Maybank Investment Bank Bhd will lead the property business by providing strategic direction and exploring partnerships to harness Gamuda Land Sdn Bhd’s vast landbank value.

The company in a statement noted that he will work alongside deputy group MD Datuk Ir Ha Tiing Tai who will continue to lead Gamuda Engineering Sdn Bhd as the unit focuses on clinching significant contracts given the strong pipeline of railway projects planned for the country.

Mohammed Rashdan and Ha will report to Gamuda group MD Datuk Lin Yun Ling.

Gamuda said with the roles streamlined, Mohammed Rashdan and Ha will be well-positioned to steer the group towards delivering the strong growth it expects to achieve over the next five years.

Mohammed Rashdan will also spearhead Gamuda’s significant investment into technology and innovation under the Digital Transformation Roadmap to enhance its competitive edge. He will play a key role in growing the business for Gamuda IBS, the country’s first digital and robotic industrialised building system (IBS) facility in Malaysia. — TMR
