ASEAN KEY DESTINATIONS
TNT Thailand Double Winners at Asia Pacific Conference 2013
The TNT 2013 Asia Pacific Conference was held recently in Bangkok, and was attended by nearly 150 participants from different countries throughout the region. Attendees included members of the TNT Express Board; Bernard Bot (CEO), Steven Scheers (Group HR Director) and David Burton (Managing Director, Northern Europe and North America region).
Held under the theme of FUTURE-PROOF, the conference provided further clarity on the Asia Pacific plan that builds on TNT’s strategy to be the ‘Most Admired Delivery Company.’ The energy level throughout the conference was tremendous as representatives and guests joined together as one strong and highly motivated team.
A key highlight of the event was the “Most Admired” award ceremony, whereby a number of winners were commended for their outstanding performance in 2012. Thailand won two awards; "The First Choice for Customers" and "Country of the Year," besting regional competitors Mainland China and Malaysia. The "Great Place to Work" award was won by Mainland China over Taiwan and Thailand. Hoau was named winner of the "Sustainable Financial Results” award among finalists that included Indonesia and Malaysia. Two "Shaping the Future" awards were bestowed upon Australia on account of the "Women in Transport" and "Creating a Mobile Depot Solution" projects. Three special awards were given to Andrew Yang, Managing Director of Hoau, Bob Black, Managing Director of Australia & New Zealand, and Project Sunrise India.
CGM of ‘Country of the Year’, Alan Miu of Thailand, said, “Within our success story lie the key elements of commitment, passion and the determination to make TNT Thailand a profitable company. Despite the challenges we have faced such as political unrest and severe flooding, we grew to be even more committed and resilient, to deliver what we promised and make it happen. We did it!”
Michael Drake, Managing Director of TNT Asia Pacific, said, “Congratulations to all of the winners and their great contributions which have brought TNT a step closer to becoming the Most Admired Delivery Company. The competitive spirit is intense and I am delighted with the high level of performance that we are showing throughout the Asia Pacific. To make TNT A Great Place to Work, we will continue with this performance-based culture and reward our top performers. I hope to see greater results this year and more importantly, have them translated and broadcast to show the external world what TNT can do.”
