KUALA LUMPUR, April 28 — Datuk Seri Amrin Awaluddin has been appointed as Lembaga Tabung Haji’s (TH) new group managing director and chief executive officer (CEO) effective May 6.

Amrin, currently the CEO of Lembaga Tabung Angkatan Tentera (TLAT), will be replacing outgoing Datuk Nik Mohd Hasyudeen Yusoff whose tenure as a board member, group managing director and CEO will end on May 5 following his decision to step down.

“The Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Religious Affairs), Datuk Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri, has agreed with the appointment of Datuk Seri Amrin Awaluddin as the new group managing director and chief executive officer of TH, effective 6 May 2021,” TH said in a statement.
