Encik Shamsul was appointed to the Board as the Group Managing Director on 10 April 2019. Encik Shamsul graduated from University of Florida, United States of America with Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering in 1986.
Encik Shamsul then started his career as a Chemical Field and Sales Engineer for about 2 years and thereafter joined Sarawak Shell Berhad in 1988. In Sarawak Shell Berhad, he held various positions within procurement, logistic and project engineering departments. He was also part of the select executive team tasked to reengineer the SHELL group in Malaysia. His last position was Head Procurement, Steel Products.
In 1995 he was General Manager for Techno Indah Sdn Bhd, a Kuok/Perlis Plantation Group joint venture with then Malaysia Shipyard and Engineering Bhd (MSE).
In 1996, Encik Shamsul was then appointed as the Managing Director of Oakwell Industries Sdn Bhd, a Singapore branch of oil and gas supply and services company based in Kuala Lumpur.
Encik Shamsul joined the PPB Group (then known as Petra Perdana Bhd, currently as Perdana Petroleum Bhd) in 2001 in expanding the PPB Group’s core business beyond its trading and maintenance services operations. He was part of the driving team which expanded the core business into high value engineering services, hook-up, construction, and maintenance services. This expansion of core business took the group from the Second Board of the Stock Exchange to the Main Board in 2003. PPB was the first company in Malaysia to be awarded a turnkey engineering, hook up and construction/maintenance services contract by then Esso Production Malaysia Inc.
Encik Shamsul also drove PPB’s expansion into the offshore marine sector in 2004 originally as an extension of its hook up and commissioning and then as a separate core business of the PPB Group. PPB Group’s expansion into the offshore marine services for the oil & gas industry was upon the acquisition of Intra Oil Services Berhad (IOS). Re-structured the operations with the purchase of anchor handling tugs and supply vessels (AHTS) of 10,000 BHP and 12,000 BHP, compared to at that time the country’s traditionally smaller horsepower vessels, thus pioneering PPB to be the only Malaysian owner-operator in the middle to deeper water operations in South East Asia at that time, thus providing it a significant regional market especially in Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia. Additionally, the strategy was to balance the fleet with maintenance work-barges and work-boats that would be less cyclical in nature and synergistically support offshore hook-up commissioning and maintenance business. This strategy and business execution led to the doubling of the PPB Group’s revenue and the eventual chain-listing on Bursa Malaysia of its offshore hook-up commissioning and maintenance business. Resigned as its Managing Director with the turnaround of the company after managing it through the financial crisis and 2009 oil & gas depression cycle.
Encik Shamsul later retired as PPB’s Executive Director in August 2015 with the disposal of the company. Encik Shamsul joined the Company as Executive Vice President, Oil & Gas in 2016. He is also a director of several subsidiaries of the Company.
