Over the past 15 years you have lived in multiple locations; The Philippines, Japan, Spain, Ireland and now US. Looking back on these international experiences, how has this impacted on the quality and expertise you display in your work?
It seems that the tech industry has hitched you! For a few years now, you have achieved global experience driving innovation and directing positive change in Multinational Companies such as Panasonic and Dell. What to date has been your biggest challenge? Is there a project that you feel especially proud of?
I have been fortunate to join Dell at a time when the company was just about to go private. There were a lot of changes that were being made in the way the company was doing business at a very fundamental level. I joined a team that was tasked to challenge the tried and tested Dell “Direct” supply chain model. Now that PCs have become commoditized and the vast opportunities available to expand market share with selling through the “Channel”, my team went through a sequence of projects that identified gaps in our supply chain processes, identified solutions, and enabled systems and tools that supported the company’s foray into the world of fixed goods assembly products, retail, and the wider distribution/ channel mode of reaching our customers.
Before joining the ZLOG program, you were working as Training Program Manager/Instructor in PANASONIC. How much importance would you place on a team’s efficiency in terms of the success of a project?
Back in 2012, you embarked on a new chapter in your life, enrolling as a ZLOG student. How was the experience? Did you take any fond memories away with you? Did the program help to fast-track your way up the corporate ladder?
Right after the completion of the program, you joined DELL team, one of the world’s leading suppliers of PCs, as a Global Supply Chain Transformation Program Manager. Do you have a clear vision for the future of the logistics and supply chain in the electronic industry? Can you give us a bird’s eye view of the future according to Mark Boyonas?
Knowing what you know now, would you still enroll into the program if you had the chance to go back and do it over again?
