Pos Malaysia appoints Charles Brewer as new group CEO


Pos Malaysia Bhd appoints Charles Brewer (picture) as its new Group CEO with effect from 1 August 2021.

In a statement today the postal service provider said Brewer brings with him a wealth of experience in both logistics and postal services. 

Brewer, 56, takes over from Syed Najib Syed Md Noor, who left on 31 May after serving about two and a half years.

“He started his career with DHL in 1984 as a courier and spent 34 years in the DHL Group in various roles. He has led operations for the global logistics giant in several countries, including in Malaysia between 2004 and 2006 as the CEO of DHL Express; Brewer was also the Managing Director of Global Customer Solutions for DHL Express in Malaysia between 2000 and 2002,” said Pos Malaysia.

In addition to those two roles in Malaysia, he successfully transformed DHL Express Philippines between 2002 and 2004. 

“Pos Malaysia delivers across the globe and Brewer’s experience in Europe, Americas, Africa and of course Asia will be helpful for the company. One of the most important criteria of his experience is of course the experience in Canada Post. In searching for talent, a postal organisation experience is a unique one that comes with both domestic and global regulatory obligations. As Pos Malaysia continues on the journey to transform itself into a major player in the region and beyond, Brewer is the right candidate for the job,” said Chairman of Pos Malaysia Syed Faisal Albar.

He added Brewer has built his strengths around understanding customer needs and efficiency of service, which are both the cornerstones of any customer-facing business. 

“Critically, he also believes in employee engagement as one of the tools towards achieving an organisation’s strategic targets. He also has hands-on experience in turning around companies,” says Syed Faisal.
