Eusoff is chairman of Alcatel's Malaysian unit
PARIS-based Alcatel has named Tun Mohd Eusoff Chin as the chairman of its Malaysian subsidiary, Alcatel Network Systems (M) Sdn Bhd. Alcatel managing director in Malaysia, Datuk Yusof Ampuan Kecil, said the combination of Eusoff's leadership ability and extensive government service will be an asset to the company.
Eusoff was the Chief Justice of Malaysia for six years until his retirement in 2000.
Eusoff, in a statement released in Kuala Lumpur, said since retiring from government service, "I have been looking for an opportunity to further contribute to our country's development.
"In accepting this offer from Alcatel, I have found that opportunity, given the vital role that technology will play in Malaysia's future," he added.
