About Chuan Yang Hoo:

I am a highly motivated individual with strong leadership skills and extensive experience in IT management. This is supported by a robust academic background and professional certifications. I possess excellent communication skills and collaborate effectively with internal stakeholders such as business unit clients, as well as external stakeholders like vendors and suppliers.

With a focus on delivering results, I have a proven track record in management and successful project delivery, while maintaining a people- and process-oriented approach. I have effectively managed the IT function for a large local business organization, oversaw IT operations, infrastructure, business-facing functions at a regional level, and global IT service management and IT stewardship functions, including Six Sigma and IT PMO.

My core competencies include

Leadership, People Management and Stakeholder Management, 
Large-Scale Program and Project Management, 
Business Transformation, Enterprise Applications and Data Analytics, 
IT Operations And Infrastructure Management, 
Outsourcing and Vendor Management,
IT Strategy, Governance and Stewardship.

Having worked across Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, and Europe, I possess extensive global and regional work experience. I am willing to travel and have successfully managed teams of varying sizes and responsibilities in multicultural and dynamic work environments.

Throughout my career, I have gained valuable experience in diverse industries, including banking and finance (American Express, Merrill Lynch), fast-moving consumer goods (Pepsi-Cola), manufacturing (DuPont, ASM, MSD), professional services (PwC Singapore), and IT systems integration (AQS). I have excelled in both startup (AQS, Pepsi-Cola) and matured (American Express, Merrill Lynch, DuPont, PwC Singapore, MSD) operating environments.

Furthermore, I am business-oriented and commercially astute. I have effectively managed multi-million dollar budgets and vendor contracts/relationships, demonstrating prudent cost management in both insourced and outsourced IT environments
