MASS Rapid Transit Corp Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp) has appointed Shahrul Fadli Omar (picture) as its new CFO, effective Oct 1.

Shahrul who has been the acting CFO since Jan 1, was appointed following the resignation of Datuk Mohd Hairul Abd Hamid.

MRT Corp said in a statement yesterday that prior to joining the company as the head of financial operations, Shahrul Fadli was the senior finance manager of Prokhas Sdn Bhd, an organisation fully owned by the Minister of Finance Inc (MoF Inc).

During his time with Prokhas, Shahrul Fadli was already dealing with the Klang Valley MRT project due to his role in assisting MRT Corp’s financial operations.

Commenting on the group’s recent appointment, MRT CEO Abdul Yazid Kassim said Shahrul Fadli was “the right candidate” for the position, having served the project since the early stages.

“Shahrul Fadli’s long-standing experience with the Klang Valley project will be much-needed as the project undergoes cost rationalisation,” he said in the same statement.

Shahrul Fadli’s previous stint also includes as the head of finance at Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd (currently known as Prasarana Malaysia Bhd) between 2005 and 2011.

He is a member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants and the Malaysia Institute of Accountants.

Established in Sept 2011, MRT Corp is the developer and asset owner of the MRT project in Kuala Lumpur and is a corporate body established under the MoF Inc Act 1957.
