Erica Chao

“Every human has four endowments: self awareness, conscience, independent will, and creative  imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom…the power to choose, to respond, to change” Stephen R. Covey

I had been struggling with career fatigue for nearly 5 years since entering into my 30s. Since then, I have grown mentally from a dependent person to someone with true independence. Today, I choose to work towards achieving a status of interdependence.

I enjoy my work not from the achievements, but from the job itself. I am energized by my devotion to creating tremendous value to the company and society as a whole.

I feel true freedom when I stop thinking about my personal image and instead think BIG.

Peter Stoyanoff

I believe business is a marriage where everyone involved mutually understands each other’s requirements and that the value proposition of a company must reach beyond just price and delivery. For a company to be great, they must also boast quality-driven production, technical and commercial competence, outstanding logistics, relevance to the market, and IATF16949 inherent processes.
