A big congratulations to Mohamad Hafiz Kassim (C’92, Sulaiman) on his appointment as the Managing Director designate of Kwasa Land Sdn Bhd.
He takes on the role previously held by Datuk Mohd Lotfy Mohd Noh, who retired at the end of March.
Mohamad Hafiz has over 20 years of corporate experience, with a focus on real estate, capital markets, private equity, financial services and accounting.
He will lead Kwasa Land’s strategy and execution in the company’s role as a master developer of Kwasa Damansara, a 920 ha (2,300-acre) mixed development which represents Klang Valley’s last significant greenfield land covering residential, commercial, educational, and recreational offerings. He first joined EPF in 2008, where he was entrusted with several leadership roles within the investment division.

Previously, he had worked with a number of reputable firms such as Daiwa Capital, PwC United Kingdom and Malaysia, as well as Telekom Malaysia, where he started his career as an investment analyst. Leveraging on his wealth of industry experience and deep knowledge of investments, his leadership will contribute to Kwasa Damansara’s efforts to becoming a leading township — one of liveable, sustainable communities, offering significant economic benefits.
