Mr Pierangelo Favero, AIMS International’s President, travelled from Italy to share insights on the organisation’s vision and global development strategy, as well as developments in marketing and branding as part of AIMS’ Find and Grow strategy.   Exciting and ongoing development of the AIMS World intranet platform for real time information sharing between offices and global cross border business development also featured on the Singapore agenda.

Mr Torsten Miland, the Danish Managing Partner gave an interesting introduction about Denmark and the AIMS Denmark operations. APAC Partners were excited to learn that Torsten and his team are gearing up to stimulate further collaboration between Denmark and the APAC region.

Mr Adarsh Matta, Executive VP APAC and Managing Partner India, delivered the APAC report, highlighting APAC country coverage, cross border business flow and setting the tempo for important key performance indicators for Partners to further encourage business exchange between the different countries.

Under the leadership of Mr Matta, the AIMS APAC region has grown it’s presence by adding strategic offices in Singapore and Thailand recently. Further expansion plans include appointing Partners in Hong Kong and in Phillipines in the near future.

Partners utilised the time together to visit several organisations in the area. Amongst others, a visit to UTAC (a global semi-conductor company) at their plant and AMOR (a French printing consumables company) was on the agenda, as well as discussions with the Regional Vice President of ABBVIE, Russia at the JW Marriot Hotel.

The 3 day APAC Partners meeting ended on a very positive note. The conference proved to be a good balance between forging new relations, meeting up with old friends and sharing diverse business cultures amongst partners and clients alike. All who were present agreed that the time spent together was valuable for all and look forward to repeating the same format during future meetings.
