KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Yasmin Mahmood (pix) has relinquished her position as the CEO of the Malaysia Digital Economy Corp (MDEC) to pursue a role in a tech venture in Jakarta, Indonesia. After spearheading the strategy and planning for 2019, Yasmin will step down from her position as CEO and all other positions within MDEC effective Jan 15, 2019. She joined MDEC as CEO on Sept 15, 2014. “It has been an absolute honour to have served in this position for the last four years and 3 months. I have put my heart and soul into the role to bring MDEC to a higher level of effectiveness and relevance, not only with the initiatives and strategies we’ve implemented but also with the cultural transformation of the people in MDEC,” said Yasmin in a statement today. At the interim, a management committee will be activated as part of the transition plan to oversee the agency’s operations during the process of appointing a new CEO.
