First Woman Chairman on April 1 as Datuk Mohaiyani Shamsudin will step in to helm Maybank

Meet The First Woman To Hold The Position Of Maybank Chairman

Tan Sri Zeti Akhtar Aziz’s departure from Bank Negara left the financial sector without a prominent female figure but the situation will be soon rectified with the appointment of Maybank’s new chairman.
On April 1, Datuk Mohaiyani Shamsudin will step in to helm Malayan Banking Bhd (Maybank), replacing current chairman, Megat Zaharuddin Megat Mohd Nor, who will step down on March 31, and effectively become the first woman to hold the position.

The appointment of Mohaiyani, who has a wealth of experience in the financial sector, was positively received as Maybank group president and chief executive officer Abdul Farid Alias said that the continuity of the board would be ensured seeing that she has been serving as a director of Maybank for five years.

“Datuk Mohaiyani has had an impressive career and extensive experience not only in the financial services industry but also in public service.

“As a member of the current board, she will already have insights into all aspects of the group and we are confident she will lead Maybank effectively as she takes up the new position,” he was reportedly saying.

Her appointment also did not escape the notice of Tan Sri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, Umno women’s wing chief and former Women, Family and Community Development Minister, who posted about this proud achievement on her personal Instagram and congratulated Mohaiyani on her appointment as the chairman of the largest public listed company in Malaysia.

“I look Datuk Mohaiyani’s appointment as the first female chairman on the board of directors of the biggest public listed company in the country as a recognition for her achievement and contributions she has given while holding the position as director of Maybank and chairman of Maybank Investment Bank Berhad,” Shahrizat wrote.

She added that this appointment is a development that we need to be proud of and hopes that it would become an inspiration to every woman in Malaysia.

“I am confident that any women who has the right amount of experience and qualification should be given the chance to be appointed to decision-making levels whether in the public sector, corporate sector or in the political arena as aspired by the government,” she expressed.

Mohaiyani, who was appointed a director of Maybank on Aug 22, 2011, also serves as a board committee member of the Credit Review Committee and Risk Management Committee.

She was with Amanah Chase Merchant Bank Bhd and Seagrott & Campbell Sdn Bhd before starting her own stockbroking company, Mohaiyani Securities Sdn Bhd, in 1985 and assumed the role of managing director.

During her involvement in the stockbroking industry, she was appointed as deputy chairman of the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange (now known as Bursa Malaysia Bhd) and chairman of Association of Stockbroking Companies Malaysia.

She had also been appointed a member of several high-level national working groups such as the National Economic Action Council, National Economic Consultative Council II and National Information Technology Council.

Her current directorships in companies within the Maybank Group include chairman of Maybank Investment Bank Bhd and Maybank Kim Eng Holdings Ltd.
