What attracted you to ASCO?

Supply Chain and Logistics which is ASCO's core business. I have always worked within Supply chain and was given the opportunity of working as a Planning and Scheduling Manager with a task of setting up a planning function which included the team, systems and processes.

What is it you enjoy most about your role?

I enjoy the fact that my role is quite challenging, and this has made my job very interesting and engaging. And what is more rewarding is that I can see the improvements made as a result of work I have carried out within my role.

Would you say you live by the ASCO culture?

I live by ASCO's safety culture not just while I'm at work, but this also transcends into my personal life as safety is a big part how we run our home. In ASCO we believe in treating each other fairly and with respect. Within my team this is one of the cultures we live by as we work in a high-pressured environment which if not managed, can lead to individuals feeling unappreciated and overwhelmed. We therefore ensure we are fair and respectful in the way we deal with each other.

How would you describe ASCO in a few words?

Growth, Innovation, Opportunities

What's the best concert you have ever been to?

Wyclef Jean - he was amazing!
