Guidance and Mentorship.

CVC has been an awesome organization, not only in terms of the professional experiences and opportunities but also the people I have met. I truly enjoy being able to delve deeper into issues that interest me. At the same time, CVC has provided me with the breadth of exposure to different areas which I otherwise would not have had. More importantly are the people. It really is about working with rather than working for those who have had more experience at CVC. The team is always willing to offer guidance and mentorship to those who need it. At the end of the day, we at CVC work hard and play hard, and I guess that's what makes this place feel like home.

Simultaneously, I was appointed the Deputy Operations Officer, where I nanaged an integrated supply base, consisting of over 400 personnel, 100 vehicles and 25 military cookhouses. Most significantly, I oversaw the transformation effort of the Army's supply chain system, which strengthened operational readiness and training outcome, while ensuring administrative excellence in the Army supply system.
