I am a Finance and Legal Head with over 10 years’ experience in financial management, risk management, budgetary control & forecasting, compliance, and auditing, at start-up and established companies within Tech (SaaS), Banking, Auditing, and Oil & Gas industries across markets in Singapore, Indonesia, Australia, and France.

I’ve always enjoyed tackling complex puzzles and challenges. This passion is what first drew me to Finance, where I was able to use critical thinking, data analysis, and strategy to take on any problems. From there, I branched into corporate development and start-up scaling, as well as investor and client relationship management, which allowed me the opportunity to drive tangible, meaningful results, and spearhead change first-hand.

I’ve now been fortunate enough to lead business cycles (regional expansion, launching new business verticals, M&A, restructuring, etc.) across multiple regions, develop deep expertise in business risk management (especially for start-ups), and come to specialise in devising strategy, penetrating new markets, and introducing new product lines.

Industries : Other , Services , Technology
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Not that I had major adversity or misfortune but there had been times where I had to make decisions or got thrown into situations that were less than desirable. In every scenario, I stick to my career resiliency framework – take a leap of faith, pick up new knowledge and skills even if it was the most boring role ever while at the same time looking out for better opportunities through my network. Throughout my 26-year career, there were several inflections points that shaped how I grow personally and professionally. I hope to share these experiences with others and at the same time learn from others.

I am based in Singapore, currently working as Operations Director for the sales organization in ACI Worldwide, a payments software company. In this role, there are 3 main responsibilities - Partner Operations, Market Expansion and Risk Officer Delegate with a common denominator of ensuring governance and compliance against corruption and bribery practices. As my role is global, I work from home and my nights are busier due to meetings with people in the US and Europe. Prior to ACI, I worked in Hewlett Packard for 11 years doing various roles in customer service and support. HP was the place where my career bloomed and ACI is the place where my career flourished thanks to investment I made getting mentors, coaches, and sponsors.

When I am not working, I enjoy cooking and baking, a skill that I picked up while working and living in the UK last 4 years. I am constantly looking for recipes that are not only easy to make but delicious and beautifully plated. I also try to exercise regularly, an area where I have low discipline and hired a trainer to keep my commitment!

One word to describe my work is growth. I gain great satisfaction seeing people grow in their skill set and get transformed in their mindset. Shortly after graduation, it was a choice between a good paying banking career and a start up focusing on youth development. I chose the latter.
But looking back, I've never regretted the choice. It means I can wake up each day knowing that I do what I believe in. This work has enabled me to inspire youths of different age group, background and culture; and engaging fellow educators and parents in their roles.
