How do you fit into the Bata world?
I am marketing manager for Bata Malaysia. I am new to Bata, and it has already been an exciting two-month journey for me.
Who is in your selfie?
Seen in the picture with Mr. Grassi are some of my colleagues from Bata Malaysia, including Chak Yih Kiong, retail manager; Ivan Lee, Bata Industrials and Nitin Bhoria, chief merchandising manager.
What does it show? What is the story?
The selfie was taken right after Mr. Grassi entered the room and was totally surprised – he was told that he was going to be attending his son’s school dinner. Mr. Grassi was ecstatic to see all of his staff in the room, and everyone started taking pictures with him in groups. It was an emotional occasion as the evening proceeded with farewell speeches by several key members of the management team, a video highlight of Mr. Grassi’s journey, and a choir performance by the staff.
Spontaneously, Mr. Grassi decided to take several selfies with the staff. In the picture, we wanted to show the bond that Mr. Grassi has with those who worked with him, a bond that formed over three years. He will be sorely missed by the Bata Malaysia staff.
What do you like most about your job?
I love that I am now part of a team that contributes to the vision of Bata, working with an international group of relentless, fun and dynamic people. It’s the diversity of the people I meet and work with in Bata that I love most.
