IBM Malaysia’s Woman on Top: Chong Chye Neo
IBM Malaysia’s first female Managing Director, has replaced retired IBM Malaysia MD, Paul Moung, effective 1st of September, 2015.
Who is she? you may ask.
That is a valid question given Chong Chye Neo has spent a large part of her career (since the mid-80s) with IBM and only IBM.
Was she being groomed for the Malaysian MD-ship?
This Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) Computer Science graduate has over 25 years experience in the IT industry with IBM. BUT it spans the APAC region, with specialisations in business strategy, market development, sales execution and routes-to-market.
Right before assuming her new role as IBM Malaysia’s MD, she was also Client Director for Banking and Financial Markets, and was even responsible before for bringing IBM’s intellectual assets from IBM laboratories around the world to IBM clients in ASEAN.
