Astro's Group CEO resigns


ASTRO Malaysia Holdings Bhd Group announced on June 7 that the resignation of its chief executive officer, Rohana Rozhan, 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-television 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 chairman Zaki Azmi said in a statement.

A pioneer member of the Astro Group since 1995, Rohana rose up the ranks to become its group chief executive officer. 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 two million to 5.5 million, whilst revenue grew RM1.79 billion to RM5.53 billion for the financial year ended Jan 31, 2018.

“The business that we built at Astro over the years is attributable to one thing – the passionate, committed and talented individuals that make up Team Astro. It is my honour to have been part of this amazing team, moving as one, to achieve far more than I ever dreamt possible in a fast-evolving and dynamic industry. As Team Astro, our passion has always been to better serve our customers, which has been our privilege and our continued responsibility” said Rohana.
