KUALA LUMPUR (May 22): Three of Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd's (MAHB) directors have stepped down from the airport operator's board effective immediately.

In a filing with Bursa Malaysia on Monday (May 22), MAHB said Tan Sri Mohamad Salim Fateh Din, 65, has resigned as independent non-executive director of the group. He will also cease to be the chairman of board finance and investment committee and member of board procurement committee.

Mohamad Salim had joined the board on July 25, 2022. He is the executive vice-chairman of Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd and the group managing director of Gapurna Sdn Bhd.

At the same time, Datuk Azailiza Mohd Ahad, 62, is resigning as senior independent non-executive director of the group. She will also cease to be the chairman of board nomination and remuneration committee, and member of both the board audit committee and the board finance and investment committee.

Azailiza was appointed to the board on Nov 8, 2016. She is also a partner with Messrs Gani Patail Chambers, a board member of KLIA Aeropolis Sdn Bhd and chairman of an independent whistleblowing committee of MAHB.

Datuk Johan Mahmood Merican, 50, is also stepping down as non-independent non-executive director of MAHB as he has assumed a new position in the Malaysian civil service, said MAHB. He will cease to be a member of the board procurement committee. Johan had joined the board on June 29, 2022, as a nominee of Minister of Finance (Incorporated).

Johan is currently the secretary general of the Treasury, Ministry of Finance, a position he had held since February.

Their departure leaves MAHB with seven directors on the board, comprising its non-executive chairman Tan Sri Datuk Zainun Ali, managing director Datuk Iskandar Mizal Mahmood, two non-independent non-executive directors — Wong Shu Hsien and Rohaya Mohammad Yusof — and three independent non-executive directors namely Datuk Mohamad Husin, Ramanathan Sathiamutty and Cheryl Khor Hui Peng.

MAHB shares closed up one sen or 0.13% at RM7.44 on Monday, giving it a market capitalisation of RM12.34 billion.
