Rompin MP Hasan Arifin named as TNB chairman


Hasan Arifin is also chairman of Pengurusan Aset Air Berhad, a position to which he was appointed last year.

PETALING JAYA: Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) has appointed Hasan Arifin as its chairman, with the Rompin MP stepping into his new role tomorrow.

He will be the fourth TNB chairman in under 20 months.

Hasan takes over the chairmanship of the national electricity corporation from Mahdzir Khalid who resigned on Aug 29 after he was appointed rural development minister in Ismail Sabri Yaakob’s Cabinet.

Mahdzir himself was only appointed as chairman in May 2020, taking over from Ahmad Badri Mohd Zahir. Ahmad Badri had replaced long-serving chairman Leo Moggie on March 11, 2020.

Hasan is also chairman of Pengurusan Aset Air Berhad, a position to which he was appointed last year.

He has formerly chaired the boards of Lembaga Kemajuan Perusahaan Pertanian Negeri Pahang, Lembaga Pembangunan Wilayah Pahang Tenggara and the Public Accounts Committee.

He was also a board member of the Federal Land Development Authority (Felda) from 1991 to 1995 and UDA Holdings Berhad from 2010-2015.

“I would like to thank the Ministry of Finance for the trust and belief in me for my appointment as the chairman of TNB. As chairman, I am responsible to all shareholders and most importantly the trustees,” said Hasan in a statement this evening.

“I hope the board and management will continue working together to achieve a better, brighter future for the company and nation.”

Welcoming the appointment, TNB president and CEO Baharin Din said that “(Hasan’s) wealth of knowledge and experience will be instrumental in TNB’s ongoing transformation initiatives and efforts to recover from the onslaught of Covid-19.” - FMT
