KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Charon Mokhzani will be leaving Khazanah Nasional Bhd and its unit Khazanah Research Institute (KRI) in the middle of May, after nearly five years of service.
His departure is part of the latest senior leadership changes announced by the government’s investment arm today.

“As announced previously, Lim is also leading Khazanah’s overall North Asia coverage (which comprises China, Japan and Korea), taking over from Datuk Ben Chan, executive director (investments) who is leaving Khazanah at the end of April,” Khazanah said in a statement.
“The new appointments and changes are part of Khazanah’s periodic refresh and strengthening of the senior management team, in line with its ongoing leadership succession initiative,” it added.
