Moggie commends TNB workforce at farewell

The country’s success in the electricity industry is a result of TNB’s employees since many years ago, says the former chairman


TAN Sri Leo Moggie expressed his appreciation to the Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) workforce during his farewell ceremony.

The ceremony was held last Wednesday to celebrate his tenure as TNB chairman which ended yesterday.

In his speech, Moggie said the legacy and tradition of TNB’s work must be carried on to drive Malaysia’s success in the future.

“The country’s success in the electricity industry is a result of TNB’s employees since many years ago,” he said.

Moggie’s resignation ends his leadership at TNB for 16 years, making him the longest serving chairman at the company.

Also present at the ceremony were TNB president/CEO Datuk Seri Amir Hamzah Azizan and his wife Datin Seri Aidah Abu; Moggie’s wife Puan Sri Elizabeth Moggie and TNB’s top management.

“I am proud to have been supported by TNB’s workforce, management and board of directors for 16 years in ensuring TNB carries out its responsibilities with utmost professionalism,” he said.

Born in Kanowit, Sarawak, Moggie was a Cabinet minister for 26 years since 1978 after being a Sarawak state minister from 1976 to 1978.

His last Cabinet post was as the Energy, Communications and Multimedia Minister from 1998 to 2004, before commencing his service as the chairman of TNB in April 2004.

Moggie will be replaced by Tan Sri Ahmad Badri Mohd Zahir who has been appointed to hold the office until March 11, 2023.

Amir Hamzah, in his speech, expressed his gratitude to Moggie for his contribution as TNB’s chairman.

“His vast experience in this industry has benefitted TNB tremendously since 2004,” he said.

To show his appreciation, Amir Hamzah announced the new convention centre, which is being constructed at the TNB headquarters in Bangsar, as the Tan Sri Leo Moggie Convention Centre.

Construction is scheduled to complete by the end of next year.
