Let’s get to know Arno ...

 

I’m inspired by people …

 

I challenge myself by …

Learning to accurately assess and understand my own and others’ perspective, so that I am able to empathically connect with others and support them effectively.

 

I encourage innovation in the organization by…

Actively listening and leveraging diverse perspectives to perform out-of-the-box thinking in order to achieve the best solutions for our patients. This is quite prevalent in our culture and instills a spirit of innovation, which makes working at Roche really unique.

 

When I’m stressed …

I get busy in my kitchen and whip up some of my favourite cuisines or head out for some mountain-biking and just sweat it out in the outdoors.

 

I choose to work in Malaysia because...

For two reasons. Firstly, from a career perspective - I feel Roche Services & Solutions APAC is in a strategic position to evolve as a key transformation partner for Roche. The second reason is the energy that Malaysia and the APAC team has to offer. I am very happy to be here.
