Intan Abdullah is the Country Head for Malaysia. Intan has over 20 years of financial and general management experience across various sectors and holds a BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance from Staffordshire University, United Kingdom and a Master in Science specialising in Management Accounting and Finance from Universiti Utara Malaysia.
Initially exposed to sectors like plantations, financial services, properties and manufacturing through her early career years with a large conglomerate, Boustead Group, Intan realised that her desire was to be in a sector that brought her closer to the community and allowed her to help people. That desire led Intan to the healthcare sector where she has gained almost 20 years of deep experience across financial and general management primarily in tertiary care settings. Initially joining KPJ Healthcare Group in its head office, in line with her desire to be at the front line helping patients, Intan moved into one of its flagship hospitals, Ampang Puteri. Intan then joined Columbia Asia in one of its hospitals where she rose to become its General Manager, heading the entire hospital to support the organization’s vision and mission in providing efficient and effective healthcare.
Whether its driving revenue and growth or streamlining processes with expertise in delivering improvements for hospital information systems, Intan’s philosophy has always been about doing things with burning passion. Advocating open and honest leadership, she truly believes in simplicity in life and work.
