Malaysia Airlines’ 12-Point Restructuring Plan in 2014 called for a specialist organisation to plan and execute a robust career transition programme for planned exiting staff. That organisation launched in 2015 as Corporate Development Centre Malaysia.
Today, after assisting over 5,000 MAS staff and personnel from other companies transition to new career beginnings, we are proud to be Malaysia’s trusted career catalysts. And we have a new name: CDC Malaysia.
We specialise primarily in individuals’ professional advancement following a major corporate and manpower restructuring event. Since our founding mandate, CDC has provided solutions for leading organisations from other, non-aviation sectors, including the oil and gas, logistics and shipping industries.
We are 100% owned by Khazanah Nasional Berhad, Malaysia’s sovereign wealth fund, and is thus, guided by the same standards of professionalism, ethics and governance as our parent organisation. As a social impact organisation, we are proud to contribute to nation-building through transformation of the minds, talent and energy of Malaysia’s greatest asset: its people.
