I met him from 2009 when he was NCP trying to do fund raising to my previous company while I was the sr. global marketing director. Later he did his traineeship project in Asus while I was leading global brand campaign in Asus.

Roger is a young energetic professional driven by passion. He is proactive, action-driven and a great influencer. He focused on the value creation rather than personal wealth development. He believes in the true international foundation and can bring a lot of different POV to the board from his generation(pre-30’s). He understand the value from the West and can integrate the value from the East. I am sure he can do very well in AAI’s executive board.

He would bring to the board:

·       work: digital, marketing, communication, social marketing, business development, sales, CRM,

·       Personal skills: communication, pitch, speech, sense of humour, proactive, positive, dream chaser
