Edwin, a graduate from Southern Illinois University–Carbondale, Illinois, U.S.A., and a professional member of the British Institute of Management-United Kingdom, started his career as a banker. He has over 25 years of experience in the banking / financial industry and has been involved in all aspects of banking which includes retail / corporate banking and corporate finance both locally and abroad. He moved into the corporate scene in 1996 where he was appointed as  Executive Director of Goodnite Holdings Berhad and as Director ofMCLBerhad (both companies listed on Bursa Malaysia) to restructure and re-engineer  their financial growth and expand their international market. In addition to this, he was also the Financial Adviser of UH Dove Berhad.

In 2001 he took up an international position with Oracle Corporation as their Financial Services Industry Expert for Asia Pacific. He was instrumental in playing a key role in the marketing and implementation of Oracle’s “e-business suite” amongst the financial sector throughout Asia Pacific.

After his contract with Oracle he moved back to Malaysia to do the restructuring for Sitt Tatt Berhad (a company listed on Bursa Malaysia). He was later appointed as a Non-Executive Non Independent Director for PJ Bumi Berhad (a company listed on Bursa Malaysia) and Alam Flora Sdn Bhd. Mr. Das was instrumental in turning around PJ Bumi Berhad with the implementation of Risk Strategies and Policies and the streamlining of the Group’s Asset Liability Management. He was also a member of the Groups’ Audit Committee where stringent accounting standards were implemented to be in line with the Securities Commission’s guidelines. His appointment was seen as very positive in the business environment.

Edwin is indeed very much a banker by profession and has many years of valuable experience and knowledge, in restructuring of companies and re-scheduling of old debt and raising new capital and equity. He has been involved in various Public Listed and Government Linked Companies and he is known for his Corporate Governance within the companies he has worked with.
