Summary

One word sums me up - PASSIONATE; I am passionate in both work and play.

I am highly versatile and equally adept in a variety of roles, whether working independently, in a team, or across agencies to achieve common objectives, with particularly excellent information-handling skills.

During my career spanning over a decade, I have concurrently handled multiple roles successfully as a high school Art & Physical Education teacher, sales support executive, police officer, training coordinator, recruitment officer, and account manager - all of which clearly show my high level of adaptability and abundant work experience in both government and private sectors.

My vast international business experience comes from a decade of experience successfully managing technology sector MNC sales accounts from Greater China (Taiwan, Hong Kong) and SEA (Singapore, Malaysia) in the computer hardware (OEM) and Consumer Electronics (CE) industries (Eg. Acer, AMD, ASUS, NEC, Samsung, Sony, Western Digital), working closely with them to roll-out Quarterly global/regional hardware-games partnership programmes.

Aside from global sales, my work experience since 2003 trained me in a wide variety of roles - administration, business development, customer service, law enforcement, training coordination, operations, recruitment – all of which have seen me been awarded or officially commended for successful work.

I have an affable and outgoing personality; my interests include current affairs, games, movies, sports, technology, travelling and volunteering. 

I excel in value creation; make a positive difference within my team; and will prove be a highly valuable asset to any organization.
