PETALING JAYA (Aug 17): Cyberview Sdn Bhd has appointed Kamarul Ariffin Abdul Samad as its new chief executive officer, effective from Monday (Aug 14).

According to a press release on Thursday, Kamarul has over 30 years of experience in a variety of fields, in and outside Malaysia. Prior to this appointment, he was most recently a general manager of Sime Darby Property Selatan Sdn Bhd, and was previously responsible for the Malaysia Vision Valley project.

He was in various key capacities in Sime Darby Property Bhd, ranging from business development, strategic planning, and corporate investment to leading business units.

“I look forward to contributing to Cyberview’s future success. I am honoured by the opportunity to share my experience with the team, as we work to vigorously operationalise the Cyberjaya master plan, which was launched in 2019. While there has been progress, and we are seeing results from various efforts made to attract both technology FDIs and DDIs (foreign direct investments and domestic direct investments), there remains huge potential to further the development of Cyberjaya.

"I am also looking forward to connecting and working with various stakeholders, industry leaders and government agencies in pushing the Malaysia Madani aspiration through innovation together,” said Kamarul.

In 2019, Cyberview launched a new Cyberjaya master plan with a focus on three technology clusters — smart mobility, smart healthcare and digital creative.

Through the Cyberjaya master plan, the technology hub is expected to contribute RM250 billion in gross domestic product, create 87,000 jobs for the Malaysian economy, and attract 1,200 companies by 2045.
