When I first joined the company, I was based in Foshan, a small city near the riverbank. I am interested in all the functions, and their job is fascinating and can always fulfill value. Our people partner goes through our problems and confusion, and they provided us with a month of one-on-one communication to help us make a clear career path and know what we really want.
After my first year's training, I chose Brewing as the starting point of my career choice. I am enjoying chemistry and biology tangly to make beauty liquid, and I have relocated to Wuhan, our first brewery in China, and also our liquid development center which has the most complex production line and product. The challenge goes without saying, however, it gave me the chance to see all the different beer production processes. I am very appraised to join in Hoegaarden localized project from Belgium to the APAC zone including China, Vietnam, and India, which is the one of most cross-brewing projects at that time. The marketing is used for easy drinking light lager beer, and wheat as the latest coming style needs to build marketing trending. Letting the customer know wheat beer aroma, flavor, and taste is the first step, and letting the customer love our beer is the goal. Hoegaarden is a very successful wheat style worldwide, and its character easily tackles the marketing and successful launch in the APAC marketing. The success of this project gave me the confidence and cleared my goal to go through the innovation pathway in this phase of my career.
Our company also opened craft breweries as a new strategy for marketing and opened the first craft brewery in Wuhan. I had the opportunity to become the first batch to join this team and become an innovation manager. I have seen the charm of the various hops and malt to make various styles of beer. Those couple of years also gave me the chance to join the Global Brewmaster program and win the Global Brewmaster No.1 in APAC. Now I am the plant manager of Wuhan Craft Brewery, and in the future, I will also create more value with bigger dreams.
