The voice of Kwang Ooi Tan

The voice of Kwang Ooi Tan

After work stints with multinational companies such as, Shell and GlaxoSmithKline, Kwang Ooi joined Genentech Singapore in 2008. The well-qualified procurement professional has a Diploma in Electrical Engineering, a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering as well as a post graduate degree in Logistics. Kwang Ooi decided to join Roche because of its reputation as a company that improves patient care. “The emphasis on ‘Doing the Right Thing’ was a reason that attracted me to join Roche,” he explained. Unsurprisingly, his favorite spot on site is the photo of a patient on the façade of RSTO, as it reminds him of how Roche’s products have contributed to the patients’ quality of life.

Kwang Ooi finds managing the procurement and production planning/scheduling teams interesting as it provides him the opportunity to do what he does best everyday. For Kwang Ooi, he describes his work experience as “a new working experience each day”.

For Kwang Ooi, RSTO provides a challenging yet relaxing work environment. “It has a culture of casual intensity and the company emphasises on strengths rather than weaknesses,” he noted.
