Keith’s career began in JWT as a copy writer in 1984. He left JWT in 1993 to join a local advertising company, as a Shareholder & Executive Director.
Keith’s professional experience spans key local and regional roles in many international FMCG and banking brands. He was involved in product development to branding to strategic planning as well as sales and marketing management. Keith was also a marketing communication consultant to a number of MNC, prior to setting up iMAXX Group of companies.
Keith set up iMAXX in early 2004 to fill a crucial sales gap in the ‘last metre of distribution’.
We asked some of our team members to share their experience about working at iMAXX. Here are their stories.
From the beginning I was welcomed by iMAXX management team. It is a team with a great culture, driven and passionate about their roles.
My core values centering around people, processes & results truly fit into iMAXX’s. So, it didn’t take long for me to decide that I wanted to make this my career.
What makes iMAXX unique is one key element: the employees. Each individual has a unique characteristic. Each individual has a story and background that is not related to others.
My major roles in iMAXX is to connect all pieces of the individual/puzzle - and that's the really exciting bit.
Helping my team to grow, to reach their personal goals while assisting our clients to achieve their business objectives are fulfilling.
Personally, it is exciting to take on more responsibility in iMAXX and to see our people working with proven systems with a collective responsibility to making a real difference to our client’s business and the employees’ aspirations
I joined iMAXX in 2013 and that time I accepted the offer as I can see that the managers are very kind and a bunch of strong ladies with great mindset. And I did not regret joining iMAXX
Nothing stays the same in iMAXX, new challenge will arise from time to time.
Every year I have at least one proud achievement; from supervising and training field staff, to data processing and analysis. Also, I get to meet a lot of individuals from different backgrounds, some of whom I had the privilege to groom/train them till they become better/stronger individual. Then we have those who had left the company but are still keeping in touch. This is the little thing that touches my heart.
Career wise, one of my major improvements is when I was being transferred to the Audit Team with very little experience and knowledge in handling BI reports and Excel program. I was feeling really scared and thought of resigning a few times over. Truthfully, I made some mistakes but my Manager helped to teach and improve my reporting and Excel knowledge. To further better myself, I enrolled in private classes, continuously practice my Excel skill and cutting short the raw data processing time for BI reporting. All of which do help me in my personal development.
For me, iMAXX is a very knit close work family, the Management and bosses are very understanding and listen to your needs. They try to make you a better person so that you can further excel in your career.
I started as a Merchandiser in 2005. After a few years of working at iMAXX, I have managed to develop a career.
I've been promoted to a Supervisor cum Trainer and then a Field Executive. The experience I'm gaining here is helpful in understanding the different ways of managing Field Merchandisers and how we can work together to achieve better outcomes for iMAXXian.
I like this company. It is a simple and lean company, you can tackle and solve things very quickly. But on flip side, simple and lean also mean I have to take on many roles and responsibilities but I take them all as a challenge to improve myself further.
I now look back over the last 10+ years with deep satisfaction, joy and gratitude, for all the merchandisers that I have recruited and trained, and knowing how those merchandisers have enhanced their knowledge and skills. I witness the progress of merchandisers whom I have recruited from day one, and to see them improved upon their own career, whether they are still with iMAXX or move on to other things.
My years with iMAXX has been amazing - every year is different. There are always new tasks and challenges that force me to learn new thing. My role does not have a truly fixed routine or task, as a Field Executive I have a pretty much a ‘freedom of movement’. I get travel from time to time. That’s what I like.
Saya amat gembira dapat bekerja dengan iMAXX kerana di sinilah boleh menambah pengalaman dan kecekapan saya sebagai seorang merchandiser.
Walaupun yang termuda di dalam team namun, Supervisor iMAXX sentiasa memberikan kata-kata semangat supaya terus maju dan mengejar cita-cita untuk dianugerahkan sebagai best merchandiser.
Semangat berpasukan yang luhur dari semua rakan sekerja telah menjadi satu motivasi dan batu loncatan untuk meneruskan kerjaya saya sebagai merchandiser di iMAXX
Gaji yang diberikan oleh iMAXX juga berbaloi untuk saya memberikan khidmat yang terbaik kepada team
Tambahan pula, dengan adanya display contest ia memberikan saya peluang untuk menunjukkan kreativiti. Perkara yang paling membanggakan diri saya ialah apabila memenangi display contest.
Jika dahulu saya mungkin tidak mempunyai apa-apa, tetapi dengan berkhidmat di iMAXX, saya mampu membeli sebuah motosikal dan kemudiannya dapat membeli kereta. Saya percaya kehidupan saya kini sudah berubah dan menjadi lebih stabil.
