With his extensive experience in the oil and gas industry coupled with his vast knowledge in finance and management, Tan Sri Mohd Hassan Marican is well-positioned to steer Sembcorp Marine into its next phase of growth and transformation. I would like to thank the Board and the management for their support during my eight years as Chairman of the Sembcorp Marine Board.
