Recommendations For Fauzi

Group HR Director Proton Holdings Berhad “Fauzi is a very experienced HR Professional. His previous experience in MNCs has given him the width as well as the breath of HR knowledge that is very valuable for him as a HR Practitioner or HR Consultant. His excellent interpersonal skills has given him an added advantage when dealing with stakeholders in an organisation. I personally have worked with him and I feel that has given me an added boost on my experience and confident.” March 18, 2009

3rd Shamshul Kamal A., Senior Manager, Proton

reported to Fauzi at Proton Holdings Berhad

“Dear Madam/Sir,

Although I had the privilege to work with Mr. Fauzi only for a short stint, I find that it’s a very rewarding experience. He is somewhat different from my previous “Big Bosses” and noticeable in some ways or other. For instance, unlike some Bosses he is very accessible and approachable and you can see him coming to our office every so often…meaning you don’t only get to see him when he calls or demands you to his office.. Mr.Fauzi does not just restrict himself to his direct reports but does not mind seeking information and help and assistance from his Executives and Non Executives and that is one of his most valuable traits. Not forgetting his good sense of humour too..

In terms of his position as an HR Director of a GLC which was (and still is..) trying to make a “come back”, his roles and responsibilities as a strategic partner to the Chairman, the MD and the Top Mgmt Team was indeed very imperative. He tried his best to materialize the turnaround plan outlined to meet our business direction… Nevertheless, I’d like to thank him for the support that he gave on one of the turnaround projects which is the Talent Management and Succession Planning initiative that I had to handle and thank god it’s well on its way… And that is another of his qualities that is being missed – always generous with compliments and always acknowledges his team’s accomplishments..

On a more personal note, I would welcome any chance to have him as my Boss again and I give my utmost recommendation and wish him all the best…” March 17, 2009
