What role has mentorship played in your career?
I’ve been blessed to have received mentorship from many great Avery Dennison leaders over the years. I try to reach out to as many leaders as possible, as I believe there is an opportunity to learn from others. These leaders have taught me a lot, from personal to professional aspects of life, decision making, how to take calculated risks, problem solving and much more. Getting advice and mentorship from others is one of the fastest ways to learn and acquire experience.
As you think about the next steps in your career, what are the most important actions you plan to take?
I’ve already set an objective of where I want to be in the next three years, which is important for everyone to think about. I’m also working on acquiring new skills, such as digital marketing combined with a continued focus on overall development. This quote from Albert Einstein says it all: “Wisdom is not a product of schooling, but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.”
What do you enjoy most about your work?
As a GM of Indonesia, I am responsible for the well-being of my team which includes almost 500 employees and their families. This gives me the great privilege to help care for 2000 livelihoods, as most of our employees are the breadwinners for their extended family, given Indonesian culture. This is a significant and powerful reason why I love my job. The responsibility of serving as a force for good keeps me waking up in the morning motivated and energized.
