PDZ brings in Helmi

Malaysian boxship owner PDZ Holdings has appointed a group chief operating officer as it seeks a move into the offshore sector.

The company said En Hafiz bin Helmi will assume the role on Friday.

His background in oil and gas and shipping is significant, having worked as managing director of Topside Marine. He was also employed by China Merchant Heavy Industry.

PDZ has recently launched a bid to buy a 20% stake in domestic anchor-handler company Efogen as it seeks to diversify into offshore shipping.
