Congratulation Tan Sri but we lost a great TALENT again

My accidental encounter with Tan Sri Hassan Marican, Petronas’ ex-chief executive and president was rather amazing and wonderful. We were at a wedding reception at a hotel. One of our friends intended to introduce us to Tan Sri but it may be improper or not very polite if we just walked up to his VIP table. So our friend went to inform and asked his permission. To our surprise, Tan Sri stood up, walked to our table to say hallo to us and chat for a while telling us that our mutual friend used to mention about us. This showed how great this person is, not proud, humble and friendly.

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 6 — Ex-Petronas CEO Tan Sri Hassan Marican, who left the national oil company last year because of friction with the Najib administration, has accepted another directorship outside Malaysia, this time at US oil and gas giant ConocoPhillips.

Since leaving Petronas at the beginning of last year, Marican has accepted several directorships with Singapore GLCs including at Sembcorp, SembCorp Marine and Singapore Power.

Marican was widely credited with turning Petronas into the only other state-run major international player in the oil and gas space apart from Norway’s Statoil.

ConocoPhillips said today that Marican was appointed as a new outside director effective December 1, 2011.

ConocoPhillips is a global integrated energy company. The company is headquartered in Houston with approximately 29,900 employees, US$160 billion (RM506.05 billion) of assets and US$244 billion in annualised revenues as of June 30, 2011.

Marican was part of the board that had appeared to have clashed with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak back in late 2009 over the appointment of a former senior aide as a Petronas director despite the prime minister having absolute powers in board appointments.
It was reported then that the former aide — Omar Mustapha — was rejected twice and was appointed only after Najib had put his foot down.

Petronas had also decided not to sponsor the Malaysian-backed Lotus F1 Racing team, going instead with the Mercedes Formula One team.

Marican was widely credited with turning Petronas into the only other state-run major international player in the oil and gas space apart from Norway’s Statoil.

The former Petronas chief stepped down on February 2010 after 15 years with the company and was appointed a director with Singapore GLC Sembcorp Industries by June.

Marican’s flurry of overseas appointments also come at a time when Malaysia is grappling with a chronic brain drain that threatens to derail its developed country ambitions.
