Prior to this, Imri had taken up the role of Chief Operating Officer at Celcom from 1st May 2020 and he was also the former COO at Telekom Malaysia. During his tenure at TM, he had served as the Executive Vice President for Unifi and was responsible for TM’s converged services which include phone, broadband, mobile, TV and WiFi.
After the resignation of former acting Group CEO Datuk Bazlan Osman, he was appointed acting Group CEO at TM from November 2018 to June 2019. It was reported that Imri was recommended by the Ministry of Finance to take up the Group CEO role but eventually the group appointed former Celcom CTO Noor Kamarul for the top job in June 2019.
Commenting on the appointment, TM Chairman Tan Sri Dato Seri Mohd Bakke Salleh said “Imri is a TM home-grown talent with a strong background in strategy and business operations, and his last positions in TM as Chief Operations Officer (COO) as well as Acting GCEO prior to that, put him in the best position to take TM forward in our next phase of growth. Together with the leadership bench, Imri will be at the helm to navigate TM through the current challenges and position us on a more resilient, competitive and sustainable footing. TM is well primed to lead in the Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR4.0); as the National Connectivity and Digital Infrastructure Provider and in enabling Malaysia’s digital economy aspirations.”
The Chairman on behalf of the Group wish Datuk Noor Kamarul the best in his future endeavours and thank him for the valuable contributions he has made to TM over the past 13 months.
