Astro Malaysia Holdings Bhd Group announced today its chief executive officer (GCEO) Rohana Rozhan’s resignation will take effect from Jan 31, 2019, but she will remain on the board as a non-executive director.
Its Group chief content & consumer officer Henry Tan, who has been with the pay-TV operator for more than 10 years, will be Rohana’s successor.
“Rohana has been an inspirational leader to all at Astro, having led the team in setting many firsts and milestones for the media industry in Malaysia. We respect her decision to step down as GCEO and wish her all the very best and a bright future ahead,” Astro chairperson Zaki Azmi said in a statement.
A principal architect of the company’s growth strategies, she has led Astro to become Malaysia’s leading content and consumer company with a growing ASEAN presence.
During her tenure as CEO, Astro’s customer base grew from 2.0 million to 5.5 million, whilst revenue grew RM1.79 billion to RM5.53 billion for the financial year ended January 31, 2018.
Astro believes that Tan will continue to champion and lead Astro into the future, it said.
