Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik (born 10 April 1950 in Pengkalan Balak, Masjid Tanah, Malacca) is the Chairman of the Rubber Industry Smallholders Development Authority (RISDA), and is a former vice-president of the United Malays National Organisation. He was aligned with Dr. Mahathir during the 1987 UMNO General Assembly. He was the chief minister of Malacca from 1982 to 1994.[1]

In 1994 Rahim was charged with statutory rape of a minor; however, the public prosecutor later withdrew the charge citing lack of evidence.[2]
