I’ve experienced an interesting nine years at West. I joined West in 2011 as a Production Engineer in the Operations department, where I was responsible for the Finishing and Metal production area, and then moved to the molding and trimming production area as a Senior Production Engineer. In 2017, I moved to Quality and took the role of Associate Quality Control Manager, where I was able to develop different skills such as Lean Six Sigma and ISO 9001 auditor. West provided me many useful training courses such as Leading Others, Leadership and People Management to help me grow from an individual contributor to a manager. Most recently, I have been promoted to my current role, Associate Quality Manager, supporting our Asia Pacific region.
