I came to India from Thailand to do my MBA, and was offered a 2.5-month internship at Philips. I got the opportunity to work on a lighting project — that was three years ago — and my career development since then has been fast! I started out in Sales, which taught me a lot about the market. I was responsible for setting up new territories and growing them from zero. It's been interesting to learn how to adapt to different locations and mindsets, and helpful in acquiring leadership skills. From there I progressed to Area Sales Manager. It's very satisfying to advance your own career path — and if you have the drive and work hard, you're given the freedom you need to do that at Philips Lighting!"
