Today’s Leading Lady is Celine Chan, Managing Director of Webhelp Asia (formerly Sellbytel).
Celine joins us from Kuala Lumpur, talking us on her professional journey; starting as, what her father perceived to be a sales girl, to becoming MD of the Asian Business for Webhelp, a global Outsourcing Firm. Celine was appointed as the Managing Director of Asia Pacific for Webhelp since 2018.
She is a graduate from RMIT Melbourne, Australia with a Bachelor of Business (Accounting). She started her working career as an accountant in one of the major accounting firms before moving into a start-up, a records management company, and growing it into a leading player in Malaysia. She was the CEO of one of the largest share registrar companies in Malaysia and CEO and Managing Director of TMF Trustees prior to joining the Webhelp APAC.
Celine shares with us how her leadership style developed, she also speaks about mistakes she made and why, at the age of 26 years, becoming the MD of the firm she worked with was not really the best for her, nor for her team! She shares candidly how rising to the top too quickly was a mistake for her career.
Right before joining Webhelp in 2018, Celine found out that she developed breast cancer. Thankfully, she found out early, and went though the treatments aggressively. After just 6 months of treatments, she was blessed to be in remission.
