By the 1990s, Tan Sri Rozali’s mettle in business was clearly evident. In recognition of his vast experience in various fields, he was entrusted by the Selangor State Government to manage the water treatment plants for the entire state of Selangor as well as in the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya that were geographically nestled within the Selangor state area. Puncak Niaga was listed on Malaysia’s main bourse in 1997. This was a major milestone in Tan Sri Rozali’s career that has helped solidify his standing as a business leader in Malaysia.

Believing that each of the business sectors will bring new challenges together with close engagement as well as technical competencies towards leading the edge innovation, Tan Sri Rozali is certain that Puncak Niaga Group will be able to overcome all of it.

In 2021, the Group continued its success by successfully venturing into healthcare and healthcare services industry since its inception in 1997 – with the handover of the UiTM Puncak Alam Teaching hospital. This has positively symbolized new development as it represents another milestone in the Group Corporate history.

Although Tan Sri Rozali expects the challenges and effects of the Covid-19 pandemic to persist over the next two years, he remains focused on the execution of strategies within Puncak Niaga business segments towards the Group’s long-term growth and value creation prospects.

Vision, Mission & Future Plans Tan Sri Rozali is one of Malaysia’s most recognized and successful business figures. With a large and heavily-diversified business portfolio, he brings exceptional knowledge, experience and foresight in managing diverse business environments.

Pursuant to the above explanation, Tan Sri’s roster of leadership and entrepreneurial skills are admirably supplemented by his commitment towards the wide-range of businesses achievements and activities outside of his business empire.

He holds numerous roles such as Advisor to the Business and Accounting Faculty Council at his alma mater, the University of Malaya, or his service as Trustee of social foundations and his role as President of nonprofit organizations that look after public interests such as the management of water as a public resource. He is also a staunch advocate of entrepreneur development programs and foundations.

Recipient of a slew of awards from various bodies and organizations, Tan Sri Rozali is recognized by his peers and industry observers locally and internationally. This is by no means an exhaustive list, for it does not include the various honors bestowed upon him by His Majesty the King of Malaysia as well as honorary doctorates given to him by international institutions.
