Randstad – a global recruitment agency and HR solutions company – today announced the internal promotion of Fahad Naeem from Head of Operations to Country Director at Randstad Malaysia.

Commenting on the announcement, Naeem said, “I’m both honoured and excited to take on this new role at Randstad Malaysia. Over the years, I’ve worked very closely with the management team to enhance and deepen our specialised recruitment services for Professionals, Managers, Executives and Technicians (PMETs) across key industries like technology, manufacturing, sales and marketing, construction and more,”

“Over the past two years, we have doubled our team of specialised recruiters from 30 to 60. We also now have the largest specialised technology team covering both software development and enterprise talent recruitment in Malaysia. In the coming years, we’ll be expanding our workforce solutions to include end-to-end talent contracting services. I look forward to building a bigger client and talent network and leveraging our world-class HR technology to continue delivering an exceptional experience for Malaysia’s businesses and workforce.”

Naeem first joined Randstad back in 2012 in the company’s early days in Malaysia. He later returned in 2018 as a strategic and ambitious move to grow and deepen our technology recruitment capabilities. Through his stellar management capabilities and business development strategies, Fahad was promoted to Associate Director of Technology in January 2020 to expand our service streams to include banking and financial technology recruitment solutions.

Since then, Fahad has stepped up to the challenge to navigate our business during the turbulent healthcare crisis that put the world to a halt. A testament to his strong deliverables and business management skills, Fahad was promoted to Head of Operations to directly oversee our business operations in the same year.

In his new remit, Naeem will continue to report to Jaya Dass, Managing Director of Randstad Singapore and Malaysia.

Jaya Dass, Managing Director at Randstad Singapore and Malaysia congratulated Naeem, “It is always the company’s top priority to be able to identify and nurture high-performing employees. Naeem has proven himself to be a very supportive and forward-thinking leader who has earned the trust of our employees, clients and talent in Malaysia. Since he started work at Randstad Malaysia, he has consistently delivered strong results and built meaningful relationships with everyone he has had the opportunity to meet. With his global knowledge and local expertise, I’m confident that he will lead Randstad Malaysia to greater heights to become the market leader soon.”

Randstad Malaysia currently provides specialist permanent talent recruitment services in industries and functions that include accounting and finance, construction, property, information technology, manufacturing and supply chain, financial services, human resources, sales and marketing as well as corporate support services. In addition, Randstad Talent was set up in 2018 to provide businesses in Malaysia with professional contracting and payroll services for more flexible workforce management.
