“Sharing my enthusiasm for our company. That’s my finest hour.”
Christina Lim is a sweet and passionate woman who falls in love with her job every day and talks about her work with fervour. The Executive Director of Bumitama Agri Ltd strives to strengthen the communication channels between the company and the financial industry. At investment conferences or meetings in Singapore, Hong Kong, Taipei, Kuala Lumpur and Tokyo, she speaks to analysts, investors and bankers to increase awareness and understanding of the company’s business and outlook. She especially enjoys leading visits to the plantation in Kalimantan where she helps explain the science behind successfully growing oil palm trees. “This is the role that I enjoy the most; sharing my enthusiasm for our company with current and future stakeholders. Meeting new groups of people always makes me feel energised,” she said.
Christina also sits on the Board Advisors of Bumitama Foundation which focuses on education and entrepreneurship. The foundation currently funds and manages 36 schools which enrolls 4,500 students in Kalimantan and Sumatra. Subjects taught range from character first, science and mathematics to Bahasa Indonesia and English. She hopes for the foundation to produce future leaders who will be able to compete nationally and globally.
Christina is the perfect example of a modern woman. For her hard work, she was awarded “Best Executive” for Singapore in 2016 by AsiaMoney. During her tenure as Head of Investor Relations, Asiamoney also awarded her company “Best Investor Relations” in Singapore for the years 2015 and 2016.
