Tan Sri M Hassan B Marican - Chairman and President (Class of 69)
Datuk Anuar B Ahmad - Vice President, Oil Business (Class of 71)
Nasarudin B M Idris - Vice President, Corporate Planning Division (Class of 71)

M Apandi B Osman - GM OGP Technical Services (Class of 70)

Wan Badrul Hisham B Wan Abdullah - GM MLNG2
The list is not exhaustive and I know a few more - including the new CEO of Petronas Penapisan Terengganu, a few GMs, a lot more SMs and tonnes of managers. It makes me feel proud working in Petronas, knowing that the movers and shakers are from your alma maters. In spite of this, I have not had the calling to don the MCKK tie on Wednesday ha ha.
It sometimes leads to talks of favouritism and of a cabal, although most people in Petronas whom I have met are very professional. They recognise you for how you perform, so when it comes to promotion people hardly look beyond your work performance - where you come from is irrelevant.
Anyway, please visit Petronas Galeri at KLCC. The invitation card is as follows, although I get the feeling this card is only circulated to the select few.
