Leadership Transition at BMCC

Mak Joon Nien
Standard Chartered Malaysia

Mark Arthun
MD & Site Leader
Smith & Nephew Operations, Malaysia

Commencing 1 April 2024, our Deputy Chair, Mak Joon Nien, the Managing Director and CEO of Standard Chartered Malaysia will be stepping into the role of the Chairman of the BMCC Board, in the interim period until the next BMCC AGM.

Mak brings with him a wealth of experience and expertise that will undoubtedly guide the BMCC forward during this transitional phase. Our best wishes to Mak as he takes on this additional role.

Mak takes over from Mark Arthun, the Managing Director and Site Leader of Smith & Nephew Operations, Malaysia.

Mark will be stepping down from his position as the BMCC Chair as he embarks on a new global role with Smith & Nephew, in the United States. During his tenure as BMCC Chair since September 2022, Mark has been instrumental in spearheading various successful initiatives for the BMCC. These include the establishment of BMCC presence in Penang, the implementation of a robust leadership and governance framework for BMCC Sector Committees & Networks to propel the success of these networks, the introduction of new membership tiers, and the successful relocation of the BMCC Executive office.

“Smith & Nephew is deeply honoured to receive the Outstanding ESG Award from the British Malaysian Chamber of Commerce. This recognition validates our commitment to ESG principles, which are core to our mission of improving people’s lives.  Strengthening our reputation as a sustainability leader fosters trust and strengthens relationships with stakeholders. We are committed to using this momentum to inspire others to prioritize ESG initiatives for a positive global impact.”Mark Arthun

We extend our deepest appreciation to Mark Arthun for his outstanding leadership and dedication to the BMCC and offer our heartfelt wishes for success in all his future endeavours.

Please join us in welcoming Mak Joon Nien as our Interim Chair and in expressing our appreciation to Mark Arthun.
