YBhg Tan Sri Dato' Ir.

Tan Sri was selected after an extensive search involving several candidates to find the perfect match for a Pro-Chancellor. The ideal candidate would be someone who has broad knowledge of ICT and technological vision in future learning.
TS Radzi is no stranger to MMU. With over 40 years experience in telecom operations, management and training, he was one of the founding members of UTSB, the first private University established by TM. It was through his involvement in MDeC in late 90's that MMU was merged with UTSB.

He opted to join the successor company TM as Director of Operations and served as Director of Marketing and Customer Services, Regulatory and External Affairs between 1987 to 1996. He was instrumental in implementing new telecommunications business infrastructures and the quality of service improved rapidly. TM's image improved tremendously on the local and international scene. During his tenure, TM was able to position itself in stages as the leading service provider for domestic, mobile and broadband service.
After his retirement in mid-1996, TS Radzi continued as a Consultant/Adviser on multimedia flagship application projects for the Multimedia Development Corporation Sdn. Bhd. (MDeC), a company established by the Malaysian Government to oversee the development and implementation of multimedia projects. He was recalled to TM in July 1999 as Chairman of the Board and its Group of companies.
TS Radzi is a corporate member of the Institution of Engineers, Malaysia, The Institution of Engineering and Technology, United Kingdom and the Chartered Institute of Management, United Kingdom. He also served as Board Member, Board of Engineers, Malaysia between 2002 and 2006.
In recognition of his outstanding achievements in the telecommunications sector, TS Radzi was awarded the PSM, which carries the title "Tan Sri" by DYMM Yang di-Pertuan Agong in 2002. Earlier in 1999, he was conferred the DSPN which carries the title of " Dato' " by TYT Yang di-Pertua Negeri Pulau Pinang.
