Chin Chen Chong, Director, Risk Management, Systems on Silicon Mfg Coy PL (SSMC)

Chen Chong has a MBA (UK), Bachelor in Electronics Engineering (UK) and a Diploma in Electronics. My work experience has been based knowledge covering the total semiconductor supply chain. More importantly, coupled with my strong passion and business acumens, I have translated these valuable skills and operational principles to successful breakthrough programs. Currently, I am the Director of Risk Management with SSMC, which is an advanced multi-billion dollar semiconductor wafer fabrication company. My key responsibility is on Business Continuity Management, Security, Information security management and Environmental, Health and Safety. I therefore led in the company wide BCM program management developing the coordinators and hands-on risk analysis, BIA etc and development the BCM culture. I have also mastermind and conducted company-wide exercises on Fire, Pandemic Flu and IT Disaster Recovery successfully. Our nature of business has also exposed us in actual incidents management where we exercised our BCP plans during power outages and more recently, the economic crisis and the H1N1. Prior to this job rotation, I was Director of Industrial Engineering when I was instrumental in leading the challenging startup operation, capacity expansion, investment planning, productivity management, standard costing, cost and improvement. I was also responsible for making strategic plans to drive cost excellence and managing our sales margin including merger and acquisition options and portfolio management. In my previous work experiences, I had nurtured Philips’ global design for manufacturing, process standardization; cycle time and productivity; assets management and supply base standardization; and smartly managing complex fast paced global projects. Such mastery of the management-people chemistry and, coupled with the passion to succeed had brought many proud success stories. Our industrial bases were transformed beyond boundaries into a formidable worldwide supply chain delivering best-in-class quality, cost and delivery. I hence possess a strong BCM skill well packaged and supported by a vast operational experience. This has attributed to the great success and competency in SSMC’s BCM maturity.
