30 years of working experience with more than 15 years in the dairy industry. After 10 years as a pure marketer, I decided to switch and build a career also in Sales which have helped me to be a better leader in my role as Managing Directors. Besides Malaysia, I have lived and worked in USA, Hong Kong and China. My favourite part of working is coaching and leading young co-workers to become responsible adults/citizens.
