KUALA LUMPUR: Power distribution solutions provider Powerwell Holdings Bhd has appointed Datuk Adam Yee Hee Hoon as its deputy managing director, effective immediately.
"We believe the appointment is timely and important for Powerwell as the Malaysian economy is recovering and electricity demand in the Southeast Asia region has been projected to triple by 2050, according to the Asean Centre for Energy," said Powerwell executive director Catherine Wong in a statement.
Yee is no stranger within the Malaysian engineering and technical services industry as he was the first Malaysian president and CEO of Siemens Malaysia.
Under his leadership, Siemens Digital Industries won the "World’s Highest Turnover Increase in Co-Sales Countries in Training Business" award and the "Courage and Innovation in Developing Industry 4.0 ecosystem in Malaysia" award.
"I believe with his long-standing experience in the industry, Powerwell will be brought to the next level,” said Wong.
According to the statement, Yee has 25 years of experience as a business and strategic leader in the engineering and technical services industry.
He is a member of the Construction and Development Committee of the Malaysia-China Business Council.
In 2021, Yee was recognised at the Top 50 Impact Lifetime Achievement Awards in the category of Business Excellence by KSI Strategic Institute for Asia Pacific.
