How would you describe your experience in CNCo?

It’s been thoroughly enjoyable and fruitful! Over the years I have learnt so much and also made friends with my colleagues. The
friendships which I have forged over my 20 years have shaped me to what I am today. A big reason why I have stayed so long in CNCo is also because of its strong, team culture as well as its values of Teamwork, Excellence, Integrity, Humility, Endeavor and Continuity. These resonate with me. 

What do you love most about working in CNCo?

It’s been such a privilege to grow together with the company. Twenty years ago, there was only a team of three in the office in Shanghai. Today we are a team that has multiplied in size, expanding our geographical and customer reach with four offices. Knowing that I have been part of this amazing journey and having the opportunity to contribute my skills will always be something that I am grateful for. In fact, if given the chance to go back in time, I would still choose to be part of the CNCo family.

How did you get to where you are now in CNCo?

I worked in Cosco for four years after graduating from Shanghai Maritime University with a Master’s degree majoring in international shipping. When the opportunity came for me to join CNCo and Swire, I accepted it in a heartbeat as I have always wanted to join a well-established and highly regarded organisation as part of my career development.

My current job scope entails customer service delivery, documentation, logistics and digitalising projects in China as part of our digital transformation. The most rewarding aspect of what I do is that I have built and cultivated a team that is committed to serving our customers to the best of our abilities, and in building CNCo as an innovative partner of choice, providing innovative and sustainable solutions.

What advice do you have for people who want to be in this industry/ to be where you are now?

Set goals for yourself, work with your heart and mind, go the extra mile and always be open-minded. Confront, embrace and lead change.
