A PUBLIC SERVANT

Leadership entails sincere service, heartfelt commitment and fair treatment of others. Effective leadership is earned and requires putting people first, listening to them and making informed decisions for the good of all.

I am guided by my father’s words of wisdom. “Plan your work and work your plan or you will never get anywhere.” To be successful, you need a roadmap of your goals and you have to act on it to make it happen. Otherwise, it will remain a dream and nothing else.

AN ENTREPRENEUR

  • President: MC Display & Metalcraft Corporation ( A Construction and Shopfitter Company)
  • Vice-President: Technical Art Designbuild (Creative Design and Interior Design Contractor)
  • Treasurer: AWD Tech Corporation (Australian Diesel Vehicles Fine Tuning Company)

With my late husband George, we built a company that grew from obscurity into the internationally accredited MC Display and Metalcraft Corporation. Clients ranging from cosmetic giant Estee Lauder Incorporated to Adidas Shoes and Levi’s Jeans to coffee mogul Nespresso use our display units. As President, I am responsible for developing the company’s sustaining growth strategies through marketing, material production and finance management. I employ some 150 fabricators/staff plus 5 on-site subcontractors to oversee constructions and installations and have added additional plants as manufacturing needs increased.

When I added my own creative design team, I developed a second company – Technical Art Designbuild. I am the Vice President of this smaller company with approximately 71 employees. Again, I actively developed the strategies necessary to ensure this company’s continued growth and ability to meet design needs of clients.  I sought to best meet the needs of my clients by combining their individual design requirements with manufacturing under a combined leadership to ensure best quality products and service.

Just a few years ago, I led the efforts to expand our capabilities and diversify to another line of business. A partnership was formed with an Australian firm to form the Australian Diesel Vehicle Fine Tuning Company – AWD Tech Corporation. I am the treasurer of this enterprise spanning the two countries.

I serve on the Boards of Directors for all family businesses and the Australian company. This continuously provides me unparalleled opportunities to work with multiple personalities and cultural differences. Developing policies, creating or expanding strategic plans for growth, and managing corporate investments for sustainability required me to be adept in diplomacy, skilled in understanding personality differences, and expert in business management.
