Past Designation

I joined reputable ship management in Limassol (Cyprus) Cyprus as a management trainee after completing my master degree study in the UK, where I had the opportunity to be trained, learnt, and had the experiences of the business world during my early and beginning of career:

  • Hanseatic Shipping Co. Ltd
    Oct 1989 to May 1990 as Management Trainee & Deputy Head of Representative
    Upon completion of my study in Plymouth (UK), I joined this Hanseatic Shipping Company (now as Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement) who then a leading ship management services company based in Limassol (Cyprus). I had spent three months in Limassol (Cyprus) as a management trainee and was trained in all divisions of a ship crewing business and then transferred to their Representative Office in Jakarta.
  • Buyers Consolidator Ltd (Sealand Logistics)
    Jun 1990 - Dec 1994 as Country Manager Indonesia
    The second company I joined was Buyers Consolidators Ltd./ Sealand Logistics (Hong Kong) who then a pioneer and leading cargo consolidators/supply chain management (SCM) company from Asia. At this company, I had held the highest rank as country manager in Indonesia and I was fortunate to have the best mentor (my regional manager) who taught me a lot and allowed me to run the business independently.
  • PT. Ayarindo Trasnusa
    Jan 1995 - May 1996 as Founder & Director
    My third company was PT. Ayarindo Transnusa who then an international freight forwarding/ cargo logistics management company with an office in Jakarta. This is the company that I was as co-owner. It gave me a very valuable, expensive and eye-opener experienced on how hard it was, to establish and run a business from scratch on your own first time. From that point onward, lessons learnt and remembered.
