Leading the finance and treasury departments requires up to date information on the foreign currency markets and accounting industry development.
I am also the corporate treasurer and acts as the Regional Head Office's (located in Amsterdam) contact on a constant basis. Local routine work starts with reviewing the hedged position on FX exposure being US$ as the functional currency and Malaysian Ringgit as the local reporting currency.
I have learned a great deal in this exciting role, from operational trading, credit risks mitigation to setting up the local ERM and cash management systems.
Periodic monthly reporting of financial results and contractual obligation in market values were the most profound tasks at month ends. Numbers are meticulously reviewed and re affirmed in order to obtain accurate results for management decision making purposes.
I love working this company despite having to leave upon the company's decision to dispose this entity to a German company in December 2011.
