Honors and awards: Recommendations: Joshua Tan (Project Manager at Caben Asia Pacific Ltd - Artsana Group) “I have collaborated with Stewart on a number projects during my tenure in Siemens. These projects required strong commitment and communication from him, as the team includes members from Singapore, China, Germany and UK. The team in UK is in charge of generating creative and innovative ideas, basically thinking out of the box. He is in charge of the team in UK. The ideas have then be realized with the manufacturing support from the team in Singapore and China. I worked with him to transfer some of the innovative ideas from the team in UK to ensure the smooth transition to production. He shows excellent communication to explain with clarity to the colleagues in assembly line. At times, if words are ineffective, he explain by doing, demonstrating what he meant. With his background, one of his greatest strength is his ability to generate new ideas and solution from ergonomic perspective - better usability.” Juergen Kampmeier (Project Manager and at Siemens AG) “Stewart is a creative mind who works with passion and high aesthetic values for innovative product solutions. I really enjoyed working with him because he is looking for new approaches, especially when targets are tough to achieve, pursueing the best possible results.”
