For close to 2 decades in FT Consulting, Stella has focused on helping both SME and publicly listed clients achieve breakthroughs in business expansion through strategy and brand development.  

In the area of strategy development, she assists clients to analyse their market and industry, deep-dive into internal environment, evaluate business performance, and develop sustainable growth initiatives.

Prior to joining FT Consulting, she was an Executive Consultant at Ernst & Young’s consulting practice where she headed projects for an organisational improvement for a diverse packaging group, and an investor’s business proposal for establishing a new airline in Myanmar.  

In addition, Stella has 10 years of experience in financial analysis and management reporting in the banking industry.
