He joined the government in 2007, to drive the Manufacturing Industry Roadmap for the Northern Corridor Economic Region, after working 20 years in various locations of Intel Corporation around the world.
With the launch of Malaysia’s Economic Transformation Program in 2010, he was recruited as the Director for the Electrical & Electronics and Innovation National Key Economic Area for which he had previously served as its 'lab leader'.
In 2012, Chris successfully led PEMANDU's pioneer initiative to transfer PEMANDU’s transformation methodology to the Republic of Tanzania. After having expanded the outreach program to a few other countries, he helped to establish PEMANDU's special purpose subsidiary, BFR Institute and now coordinates the institute's engagements with governments & partners worldwide.
