No shortage of activity at national carmaker Proton with regards to changes in management and key personnel – last week, it was announced that Proton Holdings was getting a new CEO, and two days ago, Proton chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed announced his resignation from the post.

Now, we hear that there are some changes at Proton Edar as well. Apparently, CEO Norzahid Mohd Zahudi – who was appointed as Edar’s CEO in October 2014 – has been assigned to Proton Holdings’ CEO office as a special officer, and replacing him in the position at Edar is Proton Holdings’ chief financial officer (CFO), Rohime Shafie.

As reported previously, the new man in the Proton Holdings hot seat – effective from today – is Datuk Ahmad Fuaad Kenali, who was previously DRB-HICOM’s CFO. He replaces Datuk Abdul Harith Abdullah, who was appointed to the post of CEO in April 2014.

In the announcement made on March 24, the company also said that a new deputy CEO had been appointed – Datuk Radzaif Mohamed, currently DRB-HICOM COO in charge of Automotive Distribution & Manufacturing, is the new No 2 at the national carmaker.
