My Role at Ascention

As a Financial Controller, I am responsible for leading financial decisions for both Technology Services and early-stage Supply Chain Software platform.

I hold an integral part within the leadership team to execute and deliver organisational objectives by taking accountability for aspects of financial stewardship, delivery of growth, business process and acquisitions.

How Did Your Career Develop to Lead You to Your Role with Ascention?

I started my career as an assistant accountant in a construction firm in Hong Kong. Because of my civil engineering background, I mainly involved myself in property development and construction industries, before migrating to Australia in 2011. I obtained my 1st accounting professional qualification from ACCA in the UK in 2005. Later, I furthered my study and got the HKICPA, CA and CPA Australia qualifications.

Having moved to Australia in 2011 starting as an account payable officer in a healthcare company with around 50 employees, I was promoted to be Senior Financial Accountant with a responsibility to look after the accounts in Asia Pacific Region during my 6 years tenure. I was proud of my achievement of being awarded “Employee of the Year Award” in 2016.  In 2017, I moved to an ASX listed company to become a Group Accountant. My last role was in a position of Group Financial Controller and Company Secretary.
