Raja Azmi Raja Nazuddin is appointed as new Chief Operating Officer ( COO) by the Malaysian Aviation Commission (Mavcom) effective 15 September.

From Jan 4, 2019, to Jan 6, 2020, Raja Azmi was Chief Executive Officer of Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB), the commission said.

He was replacing Azmir Zain, who resigned effective Aug 14, Mavcom said in a statement.

Azmir indicated earlier that he wanted to leave the Commission for other purposes, in compliance with the industry regulator. Since April 1, 2016, he was with Mavcom.

“The commission welcomes Raja Azmi who brings with him extensive knowledge and experience in the aviation industry as well as the corporate sector. 

"Mavcom is confident Raja Azmi will be able to lead the commission in promoting a consumer-focused and resilient civil aviation sector," said its executive chairman Datuk Seri Saripuddin Kasim.

Prior to helming MAHB, Raja Azmi was the company's group chief financial officer.

He holds a Master's degree in business management from Bath University in the UK. He is also a member of the association of Malaysia of Certified Public Accountants and of the Malaysian Institute of Accountants.

Meanwhile, Saripuddin thanked Azmir for his leadership and contribution to the industry, consumers, and Mavcom.

“Azmir was a sterling representation of Mavcom’s values of integrity, impartiality, and professionalism. He was unwavering in his commitment to high standards of governance while ensuring the commission operated in accordance with the provisions of the Malaysian Aviation Commission Act 2015 [Act 771]," he added.
