Chi Fan

Gamco Corporation

Nelson is a very kind career teacher. He taught me the way to perform my ability, and led me to gain a much more professional value. Sometimes he was very pushing, but I know that’s necessary for doing a good job. I remember one thing he told me: ” It is always busy. If you don’t do it now, It will be always busy as you’re thinking right now.” It was a simple principle but reminded me that everyone should do what they think right away. He can influence people a lot.

He is a coach, a manager, and a business analyst. He built a performance standard in many processes in our company, which is a first step to optimize processes. He is a meticulous person and knows everything comes from a small part. He changed the company to be a much better one and trained the team who can still keep improving and leading the company up.
