Astro Malaysia Holdings Bhd Group announced today that its group chief executive officer (GCEO) Datuk Rohana Rozhan has resigned with effect from Jan 31, 2019 – but that she will remain on the board as a non-executive director.
Astro’s group chief content & consumer officer, Henry Tan, who has been with the pay-TV operator for more than 10 years, will be Rohana’s successor.
“Datuk Rohana has been an inspirational leader to all at Astro, having led the team in setting many firsts and milestones for the media industry in Malaysia. We respect her decision to step down as GCEO and wish her all the very best and a bright future ahead,” Astro chairman Tun Zaki Azmi said in a statement.
A principal architect of the company’s growth strategies, Rohana led Astro to become Malaysia’s leading content and consumer company, with a growing Asean presence.
During her tenure as GCEO, Astro’s customer base grew from two million to 5.5 million, while revenue grew from RM1.79 billion to RM5.53 billion for the financial year ended Jan 31, 2018.
Astro believes that Tan will continue to champion and lead Astro into the future, it said. – Bernama
