KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 26): ACE Market-listed CEKD Bhd has appointed its major shareholder Yap Kai Min as an executive director of the company effective Tuesday (Oct 25).

“[Kai Min] has more than seven years [of] experience in sales, procurement and operations. Currently, she is the chief operation officer of the company and also alternate director [to] Yap Tian Tion, a director of the company,” the die-cutting mould manufacturer said in a filing on Wednesday (Oct 26). 

Kai Min, 33, is the daughter of Tian Tion ― deputy executive chairman of CEKD ― and Lim Bee Eng.

She is also the sister of the company’s managing director Yap Kai Ning and Yap Kai Jie.
