Chief Executive officer

Kuan Mun Leong was appointed as Executive Director on 7 May 2007 and re-designated as the Chief Executive Officer on 18 May 2020. He holds a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Monash University, Australia, and a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Strathclyde, Scotland.

Mun Leong began his career in the renewable energy sector as a project engineer overseeing EPCC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning) of renewable energy plants for two years before he joined Hartalega's engineering department in 2001. He moved up the ranks to be appointed as an Executive Director of the Group in 2007. He was also duly appointed as the Deputy Managing Director and subsequently as the Managing Director in 2012.

Mun Leong spearheaded the implementation of the sector's first oil palm empty fruit bunch fibre fuelled renewable energy plant in 2004 and was instrumental in leading its successful registration with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) or Kyoto Protocol. He went on to undertake several glove production capacity expansion projects that were key to Hartalega's current leading position in manufacturing technology and efficiency. He currently leads the organisation's transformation efforts, taking it to the next level by creating a vision to guide the necessary change to ensure sustainable growth by having the right systems, processes and people in place. In his capacity as Managing Director, Hartalega's sales revenue has grown more than two-fold through many expansion projects, the most notable being the Next Generation Integrated Glove Manufacturing Complex. He continues to chart the organisation's strategy with the aim for Hartalega to attain global mobility in the near future.
