KARACHI: The K-Electric has appointed Shan A Ashary as it’s the new chairman of the board of directors by replacing Riyadh S A A Edrees.
According to a statement from the power utility today, “The new chairman is committed to lead the utility to contribute towards the development and growth of Karachi.”
Ashary, who has been on the company’s board of directors since 2005, is the longest-serving member of the board.
“His focus will be on operational excellence at the company across its generation, transmission, and distribution functions to ensure safe, reliable, and uninterrupted power supply to the company’s customers,” the statement added.
Edrees has decided to step down from the position of chairman and board member due to his professional and board commitments and inability to be present in Karachi due to the COVID-19 situation and hence, not actively participate in KE’s board governance.
“The board looks forward to working closely with the committee formed on the directives of the Honourable Supreme Court to facilitate K-Electric’s service provision and investment approvals through a one-window solution,” it added.
