"A revenue and operations man at heart, I am analytics-driven and appreciate the finer business aspects. My role will be to pay attention to the often-neglected people nature of business, focusing on my strengths of people management and delivery optimisation. I look forward to working alongside individuals and teams to achieve their goals. 'Love All - Serve All,' added Yew.
