Mahaleel’s Job On The Line

Proton Holdings Bhd is holding an emergency board meeting today (June 30th 2005) over it’s CEO’s criticisms against the government’s automotive policy in the Oriental Daily newspaper. Details here.

Is this the end of Tengku’s career at Proton?

The results of the meeting is yet to be known but we may see the potential sacking of Mahaleel as CEO. He’s already survived 2 attempts before this, of which it is believed that Proton’s advisor Tun Mahathir intervened to make sure he stayed in the CEO’s seat.

Let’s all hope Proton gets it’s own Carlos Ghosn. He did wonders for ailing Japanese car manufacturer Nissan.

Tengku Mahaleel is out of the country at the moment.

    You are right. Proton should get an experienced foreign CEO. Cut the Malaysia Boleh bullshit and get on with the job. No use protecting something that will be dead eventually for pride only.
