Mr. Farisan’s skills and global knowledge in the financial sector made him the first choice candidate to be appointed as a pioneer in PEMANDU in early 2010 where he was appointed as an Associate Director at Performance Management and Delivery Unit (“PEMANDU”) in the Malaysian Prime Minister’s Department.
