He had since spent more than 20 years in the industry, in regional business development with last 15 years as an APAC senior management, heading various business units and responsible for business operations across Asia, including Australasia.

After he left the corporate world, he has since took up ad hoc consulting projects specifically in digital transformation and applying biometrics technologies in contactless service within company product offer or services.
