On top of the successful stories plcs in the likes of Johor Land, Kulim, KPJ and Sindora under the group. JCorp as a GLC known for the work of promoting entrepreneurism amongst its managers. Ali Hashim’s entrepreneur program developed over 100 businesses being managed and partly own by Malay professionals. A success story is Metro Parking where MD Halmi Jasmin managed to develop to be company managing over 200 car park sites in six countries, in 20 years. However, Halmi was unceremoniusly ‘shown the door’ last August.
Recently, to complicate and makes matters worse Menteri Besar Dato’ Hj Abdul Ghani Othman endorsed the appointment of four personalities, which include the infamous whipping-boy of ‘Level Four Boys’ Dato’ Zaki Zahid and the 28 year old grossly inexperienced Wan Firdaus into the Kulim Bhd BOD. Now that Ali is no longer around to be zealot as the ‘custodian of JCorp’, so many even Non Johoreans fear that QSR which hold super brands such as KFC and Pizza Hut would be dissected and sold away.
