RHB Bank Bhd MD Johari Abdul Muid tendered his resignation last Thursday, leaving the top three seats empty at the country's fifth largest banking group, sources say. His resignation comes three months before his contract at the bank ends, reported The Edge Malaysia. The RHB group - in which the Employees Provident Fund is the biggest shareholder - does not have a chief executive officer for its recently enlarged investment bank, RHB Investment Bank Bhd, or its Islamic Bank, RHB Islamic Bank Bhd.
Sources say RHB group MD Kellee Kam may take up Johari's position, in an additional role. Another possible contender is Sulaiman Tahir, who is currently an executive director at CIMB Bank Bhd. (Malaysian Insider).
