PETALING JAYA: The resignation of Astro Group chief executive officer Datuk Rohana Rozhan is not linked in anyway to the recent spate of high-profile resignations among government agencies and government-linked companies (GLCs), the company said.
It said none of the Astro executives are government or political appointees.
"Rohana is a professional accountant and manager, with an impeccable track record and a distinguished career. She served the company since inception for 23 years, is not and has never been a government or political appointee in Astro or any other company.
"In Astro she rose through the ranks to become CEO in 2006, and Group CEO in 2011," the company said in a statement today.
Astro said the announcement on June 7 was planned to coincide with the company's annual general meeting held on the same day.
It added that Rohana remains the executive director and GCEO until Jan 31, 2019 to effect a smooth and orderly leadership transition, and will continue to remain as a board member thereafter.
