New appointment is in addition to existing roles as Country Manager and Personal Health Leader for Malaysia

Petaling Jaya, Malaysia – Philips Malaysia has appointed Muhammad Ali Jaleel as Health Systems Leader for Malaysia effective 1 February 2019, adding to his role in the company, which also includes the positions of Country Manager for Malaysia and Personal Health Leader for Malaysia.

In his new role as Health Systems Leader for Malaysia, Ali is responsible for the areas of business development and growth, business transformation, people management, leadership development, quality & regulatory and compliance for the Health Systems portfolio. 

With Ali’s wide-ranging business acumen, we are confident in his ability to grow the Health Systems portfolio in tandem and in synergy with the Personal Health portfolio that he already leads. He will undoubtedly advance Philips’ corporate vision of a health continuum where the healthcare and consumer worlds integrate to put people at the heart of a holistic system that helps them take control of their health and stay healthy and independent. I am certain his leadership will further strengthen our work with all stakeholder segments in the healthcare ecosystem, and expand our role in supporting healthcare professionals as they work collaboratively with their peers and with patients to optimise the outcome of the healthcare system.
