Celebrating a Quarter Century of Dedication

Honoring our colleague Alex Yap's 25th anniversary with Jebsen & Jessen

We recently celebrated a major milestone at Jebsen & Jessen Ingredients: Alex Yap's 25th anniversary with our company. In a world where job-hopping has become increasingly common, it is rare to find someone who has spent a quarter of a century with the same organisation. This is why we were thrilled to celebrate this momentous occasion that brought together many colleagues to honour and thank Alex for his hard work and contributions over the past 25 years.

Throughout his tenure, Alex has shown exceptional leadership skills and an unparalleled ability to motivate and inspire those around them. This resulted in him becoming the General Manager of Jebsen & Jessen Ingredients Singapore and Malaysia a few years ago, stepping up and expanding from his role as Department Manager of Performance Chemicals and Pharmaceuticals & Personal Care for Singapore and Malaysia.
