Malaysia’s Sapura Energy has appointed Datuk Mohd Anuar Taib as its new president and CEO, replacing Tan Sri Shahril Shamsuddin who has retired after leading the group for more than 25 years.
Datuk Mohd Anuar joined Sapura Energy as an independent director in August 2020 and his previous roles include being chairman of Shell Companies in Malaysia and an executive vice president at Petronas.
Tan Sri Shamsul Azhar Abbas, chairman of Saupra Energy, commented: “On behalf of the board of directors, we wish to record our gratitude to Tan Sri Shahril, whose vision and determination turned Sapura Energy into a Malaysian multinational company capable of competing and winning on the global stage. His leadership enabled Sapura Energy to grow from a domestic focused player into a renowned energy company serving the entire upstream value chain; and his foresight set the foundation for the Group to progress beyond oil and gas into renewables.”
Tan Sri Shahril founded Sapura Energy in the mid-1990s.
