Hi, I’m Ahmed

I’m a IT Hub Director

I’m based in Malaysia and I look after the amazing teams that help Danone deliver health through food.

My journey so far
  • India South-East Asia IT Director
  • Lead One Danone IT Transformation for ISEA
  • Expanded Role: Data & Tech Lead APAC

Doing business in a mindful manner

Danone takes responsibility beyond purely commercial outcomes, we’re mindful of the planet, and of the health we need to bring to it. It’s not just about IT, or finance, or production functions, it’s about health through food. My team has recently helped set up a customer relations team in Cambodia that gives advice to mothers using our milk products. So our work directly helps with awareness and better health for those mothers and their children. That’s a real impact to be proud of.

I love the culture and diversity!

A place to discover your true potential

I’ve been supported to grow here, and I’ve been able to give back. There’s richness to the culture and a real mix of views. We have open conversations and find a way to fulfil our potential together.

Courageous conversations make great things happen

Although my main role is in IT, I can get involved in whatever project or initiative that I want to if I can clearly make a contribution. And I can suggest ideas and be listened to when I identify an opportunity for things to improve. I initiated a conversation across all the IT departments in my region to learn more about the skills and expertise that everyone has, and that’s helped us tackle projects better and grown everyone’s awareness of each other.

This is the place if you want the freedom to learn!

Your development is in your own hands

Danoners are very much the owners of their own development, we’re in the driving seat. There’s nothing holding us back. It’s not hierarchical here, it’s possible to connect with people across teams, across nations, across cultures, and I can use those connections to develop myself and my team.
