Karen will stay, Omar?
State-owned enterprises minister Mustafa Abubakar confirmed on Tuesday that government will not replace Karen Agustiawan as the CEO of giant oil and gas company PT Pertamina. But it's almost certain that there will be no more vice president director position. So, how about Omar S. Anwar, who was appointed vice president director in February 2009?
"She will not be replaced. I want to end the speculation (about replacing Karen who was appointed CEO in February 2009)," Mustafa said.
How about Omar? "Let's see. But it's confirmed that there will be no more vice president director post for Pertamina," Mustafa said. Omar left PT Rio Tinto Indonesia to join Pertamina early last year. He became CEO of Rio Tinto after he left state bank Mandiri. He was consumer banking director at the largest bank.
