Tan Sri Abdul Wahid Omar – A Humble Malaysian Super-Achiever


Tan Sri Abdul Wahid Omar – A Humble Malaysian Super-Achiever

Tan Sri Wahid came from humble beginnings to become one of Malaysia’s most successful corporate leaders in the new millennium, successfully leading four major organisations in infrastructure development (UEM), telecommunications (Telekom Malaysia), financial services (Maybank) and investment management (Permodalan Nasional Bhd).

He was also appointed a Senator and Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department in charge of Economic Planning from June 2013 to June 2016, heeding a national call to duty. Today, he is the Chairman of the stock exchange operator Bursa Malaysia as well as Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM).

Throughout his career and through the turbulence and pressures of corporate and political life, Tan Sri Wahid has managed to comport himself in the same calm and humble manner that he has become known for, making him one of the most respected and likeable figures in corporate Malaysia.

Here, he shares his rules and principles for life with Khoo Hsu Chuang.
