Why Petronas? Isn’t he not also the adviser to Proton? Petronas is way larger and more glamorous than Proton.
"I have been with Petronas for 10 years, I feel that Petronas has performed well and made a huge profit.
"I hope Petronas will continue to play its role in nurturing young entrepreneurs," The Star quoted him saying.
That bit about continuing to nurture young entrepreneurs is loaded because he was recently embroiled in a tussle of sorts with Petronas management over allegations that the national oil company was not doing enough to help Bumiputera businessmen.
