How did your work start in our company?
When Veeam first expanded into the APAC region, I used to look after Veeam in the capacity of an accounting and taxation adviser & manager, in a Sydney accounting firm. Then an opportunity came up to join Veeam, and I was extremely excited to be invited to provide direct finance and accounting support to our local APAC Team.
How would you describe your job to someone who is unfamiliar with it?
My role is to oversee the Finance department to ensure that everything that is ‘finance’ related runs effectively and efficiently. This would include producing and maintaining financial accounts, reporting to Veeam leaders on a timely basis, attending to auditing requirements, managing all tax and regulatory matters, including contributing to decisions regarding financial strategy. It is also important that Finance supports the wider Veeam team in the company’s operations.
What do you like about your job?
The fast-paced and energetic environment. It is not a conventional Finance team in a conventional IT software firm. The work is always interesting and challenging. There is never a boring work day. Veeam is a dynamic organization, and certainly my preferred career choice in the commercial world. The opportunity here allows you to reach great potential. Like they say ‘a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step’.
How do you like your role?
Being able to interact with employees on all levels of the organization and across functional areas with a common purpose. This role allows one to exercise autonomy and creativity to maximize positive impact to the company.
What are some qualities required for success in your department?
To maintain an open mind, and always have passion for what you do. Always be ready for change and never be afraid to venture into unchartered territory.
What are your hopes for new employees on your team?
Now I aspire to provide world-class finance support to our organization and to grow with the company. I hope that our new employees will find passion in whatever they do, and that they will appreciate and enjoy every stage of their career at Veeam.
