“The board is confident that Nazri will continue to maintain the momentum to fulfil Danajamin’s role as a catalyst to stimulate and further develop Malaysia’s capital markets,” chairman Mohammed Hussein said.
Nazri Omar joined the company in 2011, working as the insurer’s director of client coverage.
