Welcome to another episode of 30 minutes with DailyStraits.com. Today, we are gonna break away from our usual entrepreneurial chit chat and speak to a managing director (MD) of a public listed company instead. So, our first guest for this series is Edward Loy, the MD of KONE Malaysia.
Founded in 1910, KONE is a publicly listed company headquartered in Helsinki, Finland. The company builds and services moving walkways, escalators, elevators, automatic doors and gates.
It provides services for builders, developers, building owners, designers and architects in 1,000 offices in over 50 countries. So, today, we are gonna talk to Edward about all things engineering and how he manages his day to day affairs as a country MD for KONE.
Some of the questions that would be answered in this podcast are:
• Explaining to our listeners what KONE does as a company?
• How has the pandemic impacted KONE’s business?
• How does KONE ensures that its employees, subcontractors, and partners are safeguarded during the pandemic?
• What are some of the new large scale projects that KONE is working on in Malaysia?
• How does one become a country MD for a public-listed company like KONE?
Hey there! Thanks for listening to our podcast thus far. Are you a MD of a public-listed company? Well, if you are, then we would like to hear from you. In our next podcasting series, we would want to pick the brains of MDs around the world and find out what makes them tick!
