Having started as Management Trainee under the Li & Fung PMD system (Programme for Management Development), Stephen further progressed his career with LF Logistics in Thailand only to later bring his significant experiences to idsMED Thailand where he took on the vital role of Operations Manager where he took on Sales Operations Management (SOM), Logistics, Inventory Management and Regulatory Affairs. Quite a challenge! As the Thailand companies inaugural awardee, we could not have found a more deserving and long serving candidate.
Stephen, how do you feel having received AAA award?
I feel like I go doing a lot with the company so as you know idsMED has grown rapidly in this recent years I feel like I also do a lot for the company as well.
The thing is I can really see the difference when look past back 3 years ago in Thailand, and you can implement and make a difference in the company, this is very exciting.I think it is the challenge with the motive.So everyday when I come to work, actually yes there are a lot of issues and challenges.
But I am the people that like to overcome the challenge and not giving up.
And also another back side is also my people, my teammate and all the colleagues so everyone support me so this always motivate me to do the operation department better
I feel very honor to be getting AAA rewards for ten years, on the other hands, of course I feel older as well.
But anyhow I would like to thank for all the colleagues that I have worked during in my Lifung group time as well as idsMED, from Hong Kong, Philippines, Thailand all the team, so especially for Thailand team here, all of you, which really support me and I feel very happy and honored to be working with all of you and I will continue to work hard and contribute more for next work.
The 2018 CEO award was then given to Ms. Sarinya Tungjoy (Senior Manager - Principal Relationship Management). Ms. Sarinya received this prestigious award in recognition for managing a broad array of Principal products with both passion and confidence. Amongst the idsMED team in Thailand, Ms. Sarinya is identified as being a very smart and capable operator with both a positive attitude and an open mind towards the business and her colleagues. Ms. Sarinya has a unique ability to win the hearts and minds of those who she works with, and the Thailand team are very comfortable when in her company. Importantly she is always willing to learn new skills while taking on additional challenges. Again, the perfect awardee for this first occasion of the CEO Award presentation.
I acquired Bachelor of Medical technology but ultrasound was not my favorite subject. As a very new graduate, it was so difficult to find the job. Mr. Boonchai (Sales director) had finally given me a chance to work and take care of Smitivej Hospitals.
My very first customer is Boonsaeng Wutthipan, M.D, OB&GYN, who interests in Logiq P6 for IVF ultrasound. I was so excited so I immediately appointed the doctor for demonstration. Because I had not learned Logiq P6 well, Dr.Boonsaeng scolded me “fool” loudly in the OR, I felt so ashamed and cried badly.
After that case, I was married with Logiq P6 and every other model. I learned very small button and technology. Asking for the second chance to get into case with Dr.Boonsaeng, I responsed quickly and demonstrated well under pressure. Finally, Dr. Boonsaeng chose our products and continuously placing the orders to me. “Where there is a will, there is a way”
