My educational background in Economics majoring in Management has played a pivotal role in my extensive 20+ year career within the financing company, shipping industry, Blending Fertilizer manufacture (State-Owned business entity), maritime service, and offshore engineering sectors. While there wasn't a specific inspiration for my entry into the mining industry, my drive for continuous career development led me to be appointed by the majority shareholders of Group Company (PT Sungai Mas Minerals) to spearhead AKP as a part of the mining division. With abundant natural resources in Indonesia, particularly in minerals, AKP venture into nickel mining aligns strategically with the global shift towards green energy, where nickel plays a crucial role. This endeavour allows AKP to contribute to the transformation of global energy usage, moving to more sustainable alternatives.

Integrity stands as a guiding beacon, permeating every facet of professional conduct and interactions with stakeholders, while an unquenchable thirst for knowledge fuels an enduring commitment to perpetual learning and adaptation to change. My current achievement is not my end target in my professional career but is the result of persistence in carrying out responsibilities. Because once we feel smart, it means we have to learn more.

While each person's approach varies, I view leadership as akin to conducting an orchestra, where you hold the reins of rhythm and harmony. The key lies in strategically placing individuals with the right skills in suitable positions, simplifying the role of managing vital matters while adhering to the agreed-upon plan. Uphold transparent communication both internally and externally to swiftly address potential issues, particularly non-technical ones. Never disregard evaluating completed activities, and remember that leadership is an ongoing learning journey within the organizational realm.
