New MTCC CEO appointed

President Mohamed Nasheed appointed Hussain Amru as the Chief Executive Officer of the Maldives Transport and Contracting Company (MTCC) last week.

Press Secretary Mohamed Zuhair told Haveeru that Amru was working on corporate issues as undersecretary at the president’s office and had completed higher education in the field.

In January this year, President Nasheed dismissed former Managing Director Mohamed “Nafa” Naseem from the post ostensibly for poor performance and failure to follow government policy on competitive markets.

Meanwhile, Thilafushi Corporation CEO Mohamed Zahir has been appointed Food and Security Coordinator at the Fisheries Ministry after the corporation’s board decided to replace Zahir.

In May this year, the board decided to appoint Ibrahim Riyaz, Dhiraagu Marketing Manager for Broadband and Data, as the new acting Managing Director of Thilafushi Corporation.
