DAT Employees: Success Stories
( General Manager )
20 years ago, I started my career at ACE Data Systems as an Apprentice. Looking back, I keep track of my career by following the rule of determination and hard work. It is important that you do not lose sight of what you want to be. I have now held the position of General Manager in DIR-ACE Technology more than ten years since it was established. I am indeed a working mom raising two kids while working. It’s not easy job to do in keeping balance between work and kids. But I am not alone in that respect because there are many working mums not only in DAT but also in our business environment. That shapes the way how women lead their life. Personally, I feel motivated to come to work knowing that the work I do can have a positive impact on our younger generation and society.

As I am an employee, I genuinely care about the harmony of giving and receiving between myself and the business. I think that each side’s progress is dependent on the other. Self-improvement should be enhanced by performing office chores to achieve KPI. As employees have improved, so too should the organization. I have a total of 16 years of professional experience in the IT sector, but about 12 of those years are in DAT. I began my career journey at DAT as a software engineer and advanced to the position of deputy general manager. I received my MBA and completed the PMP, PSM 1-Scrum Master exams as part of my academic advancement. Also, the DAT increased from 20 to over 250 personnel.

I received the DIR President Award because these thoughts are so important to me.
