Statement of Purpose
To stand on a freighter deck in a wicked storm then dive into seeming mountainous data is a product of my passion for asset management. Excelling in a profession few understand requires a fearlessness that has impelled my ongoing advocacy for the oil & gas industry. However, I think the most compelling reason I seek new vistas, stems from my introduction to the meaning of Asset Management. In 2013, I began work as a CMMS engineer for an oil and gas company. Devoted to bringing value, my supervisor was notably impressed by my efforts and I was promoted to team leader.
Many of our tasks involved hands on data cleanup, identifying gaps, creating BOM, and meeting constantly with clients as well as spearheading new projects, creating multiple IBAU and standardizing the asset register with more than 100K data changes, despite sleep deprivation. When I asked myself: why did I make such an effort? I realized how important serving the client mattered and that asset management was, in fact, the intrinsic meaning of my work.
Another turning point can be traced to an incident that took place before I was born: ‘the Piper Alpha incident.” In 1988, due to faulty procedures there was an oil rig gas leak taking the lives of nearly 200 workers and costing in excess of one billion pounds. To me it was a chilling reminder of a profession with the potency of disaster. Beyond healthy caution, it infused me with motivation to strive to do my part that it would never happen again. Whether serving as a CMMS leader in Kuala Lumpur or for Nexus Malaysia, clippings of this disaster emphasized the imperative of reliable equipment and the core necessity of protecting asset integrity. In the final analysis these faded articles echoed the need for vigilance by those of us charged with such managerial responsibilities.
As to the state of asset management in Malaysia, it is in its infancy. As a developing nation, there are scattered individual firms, but there is no shared vision, no skilled expertise and virtually no understanding of Asset Management. Moreover, there is no shared foundation. As I pursue masters training and build upon both leadership in the field as well as asset management acumen, I know I can be a force for my change in a homeland that needs so much. In a speech I the United Nations, I heard Emma Wilson challenge “If not now, when? If not you, who?” She threw down the gauntlet and I have picked it up.
