My background:

I have an extensive background within the Malaysia recruitment arena. I previously led the professional division for a global executive firm and acted as COO for a mid-sized PLC  where I provided services across permanent, contract and Business Process Outsourcing services.

Prior to joining Ambition, I have also held a senior post within the internal recruitment and HR division for one of the largest MNCs in Malaysia.

I have supported many of the fastest growing Commerce businesses where I was responsible for selecting the right leadership team in times of business change, provided fresh ideas to address market challenges, manage business transformation as well as build resilient teams from the ground up.

Roles I recruit for:

Currently, I lead the Commerce division within Ambition Malaysia which includes Technology, Digital and Finance & Accounting.

What my clients and candidates say about me:

“I have been engaging with Ambition for some time now and I am very pleased with their professional service and also their vast experience in the Malaysian market and also within the Asia Pac region. Besides that, Ambition has also good knowledge in niche roles and is able to articulate good solutions for recruiting managers like me in order to fill in global roles that I am building in Malaysia. I am happy with their service as they also have regular talks on market trends which give senior managers like me a good insight what’s in store on the market. I would anytime recommend Ambition since they have professional consultants and business director like Siew Yong who makes my job easier in the recruitment field.”

Outside of Ambition

Painting and drawing are my favourite hobbies at this moment. I feel a great sense of enjoyment and achievement when I paint and draw because it allows me to feel peace with myself and I can create whatever I want and as I wish!
