Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) president and group CEO Tan Sri Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin has made it into the 100 best global Brand Guardians for 2019 by Brand Finance, the world’s leading brand valuation authority.

Petronas said Wan Zulkiflee (picture) was ranked number 95 in the world by Brand Finance.

“He received the recognition due to his visionary leadership, prudent management and successful track record in steering the national oil and gas company and the industry forward through some of the most turbulent and challenging years in recent times,” it said in a statement.
