Y Bhg. GEN Tan Sri Mohd Ghazali Seth
General (Rtd) Tan Sri Dato’ Mohd. Ghazali Seth was born in Johor Baru, and enlisted in the elite Royal Malay Regiment in 1950. He is a distinguished graduate of Eaton Hall (UK), as well as several very prestigious military institutions: Sandhurst Royal Military Academy (UK); Military Staff College Camberly (UK) and Joint Services College Latimar (UK). He achieved many “firsts” in his military career, including being appointed as our first Military attaché to Jakarta and the first Director of Joint Intelligence.

Tan Sri was a Major General after 19 years of commissioned service and became Chief of the General Staff (Army) in 1977. At age 48 he achieved the pinnacle of any military career, assuming the position of Chief of Defense Forces (aka Joint Chiefs of Staff) in 1981. He was known as a firm but fair leader, consistently meticulous and objective. His legacy as a great strategist and diplomat continues to inspire others who also choose to walk the path requiring uncompromising sacrifice, honor, integrity and service to the nation.

The General has served on many corporate boards, including Nestle (M) Bhd., CCM Bhd., and GA Insurance Bhd. He was appointed as a Senator by Royal decree from 1990 to 1993; is a “Distinguished Fellow” of the Institute of Strategic Studies (ISIS) and continues to volunteer his time for many charity causes.

We are extremely grateful and honored to have the General’s gracious consent to assist us by being a Strategic Advisor for our various Warfare and National Security platform programs.
