Media Prima has appointed senior independent non-excutive director, Datuk Mohd Nasir bin Ahmad (pictured), as interim independent non-executive group chairman. This comes as Tan Sri Ismee Ismail steps down from his position and resigns from the board.
Mohd Nasir bin Ahmad, who joined the board on 26 February 2016, is currently serving as chairman of the group’s audit committee and member of the nomination and renumeration committee. He is also chairman of Sistem Televisyen Malaysia and a board member of Synchrosound Studio. Meanwhile, Ismee Ismail joined the board on 1 June 2017 and also served as chairman of the group’s risk management.
“In accepting Tan Sri Ismee’s request for resignation, the board expressed its deepest appreciation and gratitude for his leadership and contributions to Media Prima,” the press statement read.
This comes shortly after the group announced that Datuk Seri Mohd Ashraf Abdullah will be ending his tenure as group managing editor of news and current affairs, Media Prima Television Networks (MPTN). He first joined Media Prima as group editor of TV3 in June 2009. Replacing him is deputy group managing editor, news and current affairs, MPTN, Datuk Manja Ismail.
