KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 4 (Reuters) - Malaysia’s Employees Provident Fund (EPF) said it has appointed Alizakri Alias as the pension fund’s new chief executive effective on Aug. 20, according to a statement on Saturday.
Alizakri joined the EPF in 2014 as the deputy chief executive of strategy. He previously served at the country’s central bank and other state-linked firms.
Malaysian state-linked firms have seen a change of top officials since the new government led by returning premier Mahathir Mohamad took power following a shock election win in May. Mahathir has criticised the management of state-linked firms and promised structural reforms. (Reporting by Emily Chow; Editing by Tom Hogue)
