KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 12 (Reuters) - RHB Capital group managing director Kellee Kam Chee Khiong has resigned, according to RHB Banking Group's announcement on the local bourse.
The fourth-largest Malaysian bank by assets said on Thursday it had a succession plan in place and "will execute a transition plan for a smooth handover of responsibilities".
Kam's departure comes after RHB called off a proposed plan to merge with CIMB Group Holdings Bhd, the country's second largest bank, and smaller lender Malaysia Building Society Bhd, in a bid to create Malaysia's largest bank by assets, citing a failure to agree terms in a worsening economic environment.
