Alex Goh

Marketing Maestro

One of our Marketing Maestros, Alex loves cycling, singing, and sometimes “a little bit of cooking.” Whenever he’s not busy working his Maestro magic, he enjoys playing online games, mahjong, and indulging in his secret chef fantasy with the odd episode of MasterChef. Every now and then Alex also likes to get real deep and contemplate his true purpose in life (don’t we all?). He considers himself a “normal, regular dude” who lives by the idea that progress doesn’t always have to result in huge changes; that he can be “a little better” than he was yesterday, as long as he keeps moving forward.

Alvin Huang

Head Honcho

El Jefe. Head Honcho. The Big Enchilada. These are just a few of the (unofficial) titles Alvin holds. More than just "The Boss," he is the man behind the conception of the SuccessVantage that stands today. Alvin values lifelong learning, and is known to show up in the office with entire bags full of inspirational self help books purchased from who knows where (seriously, someone tail this guy and find out where he's getting these bulk deals!). As director of the company, he strives to not only inspire the people who work for him, but pretty much anyone he comes across (totally wasn't paid extra to write that, honest). When he's not busy being the visionary leader guiding us to new frontiers, Alvin loves traveling the world and spending time with his family.

Ang Weiying

Marketing Maestro

Weiying is one of our Marketing Maestros, whose passion is keeping her loved ones happy. She loves spending quality time with her family and friends, and engaging in activities like having a meal together, or cycling for leisure. She also loves playing with her precious dog. Weiying finds motivation in constantly reviewing herself and learning from past mistakes so she can not only avoid them, but also keep track of the improvements she’s made. She believes that there’s always room for improvement, and that there’s always someone smarter to learn from. The biggest source of inspiration for this self-professed Ice Bear (from “We Bare Bears”) comes from her parents, who taught her how to love unconditionally and treat everyone with kindness and compassion.

Ashikin

Artisan

One of our many Artisans, Ashikin loves a great number of things, including art, photography, and Dikir Barat (it's like Malay lyrical freestylin', yo). During her downtime, she bakes, explores new frontiers in media design, and doodles for fun. This shy (although she can be a little loud sometimes) and funny individual finds inspiration in her mum, and is driven by family, food (c'mon who doesn't love food?!) and goals she sets for her own future.

Chelcy Kwan

Artisan

Chelcy is one of our talented Artisans, whose passions lie in video gaming, yoga, and dreaming (though we’re not sure if she meant mere day dreaming, or the more awesome mind-bending Inception-style lucid dreaming). When she’s not busy crafting works of art, she enjoys spending her time doing a great number of things, including (but not limited to): watching classic Disney or fantasy films (she cites Alice in Wonderland as a personal favorite), catching the next episode of New Girl or The Big Bang Theory, listening to Jay Chou songs, and embarking on a perilous quest in League of Legends with her friends. Chelcy considers herself to be a “dreamer working on inner peace,” motivated by Jay Chou, Tim Burton, and the idea that “if one dream fails, you can still dream another!”

Cheryl Liew

Wordsmith

Cheryl is one of our Wordsmiths, who enjoys quite a number of things, including - but not limited to - writing, hoarding books (and almost always never reading them), Doraemon, movies, concerts, and - strangely - laughing at her own jokes. When she's not busy pulling random words from the ether and forming intriguing, eloquent sentences with them, she can either be found among friends on the hunt for food, or in a delirious coma in front of the television enjoying her favorite shows. This bubble-tea fiend considers herself to be loud, annoying, and loyal, and draws her inspiration from God and everyone around her, taking the best bits and pieces of everything she sees and applying them to her life in her quest to become a better person.

Daniel Kok

Marketing Maestro

One of our talented Marketing Maestros, Daniel is often at his desk working on some top secret assignment (actually, no one really knows what he does... except maybe Alvin). On his downtime, he enjoys spending quality time with friends and family, indulging in the things he loves: sitcoms (pretty sure he's got every episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine memorized), music, fashion, and movies. A lifelong learner, Daniel cites second century A.D. Chinese strategist Zhuge Liang as a source of inspiration (which I'm pretty sure is his way of saying he'll out-strategize you at pretty much anything so don't even try!), and is driven by his will to become better at everything he sets his mind to.

Marketing Maestro

Ella is one of our Marketing Maestros who has a passion for traveling and ice cream. When she’s not working her marketing magic, you can find her hanging out with her family, or just reading motivational books – they’re both what drives her, along with the euphoria of surpassing her own expectations. Describing her parents as selfless, hardworking, intelligent, and kind individuals, she aspires to be like them every day (aww!). If you want to get into her good books, she’s a “chili crabs and ice cream” kind of girl, so…you know what to do!

Farrah S.

Marketing Maestro

With her perpetually on-point eyebrows, love of all things that go meow and Coldplay, Marketing Maestro Farrah always has time to look glam. When she's not catching up on the latest side-splitting sitcom or whipping up amazing dishes for her loved ones (we think she should open a restaurant), she can usually be found chilling with her furry pals. The desire to be better drives her onwards, with her momma always acting as her guiding light. Her hard exterior hides a soft, gooey centre, and she aspires to love and treat everyone equally, no matter what.

This Video Maestro spends her time listening to rock and soul music, watching foreign films, and generally chilling. Often inspired by cult-favorites Wes Anderson and Quentin Tarantino, it's no wonder Ferisa adores - and is motivated by - people with good vibes and a good sense of humor (#HipsterAlert).

Big Chief Beancounter

Our resident Big Chief Beancounter, Guanyi has a knack for keeping things organized, which is great because she can often be found working with our Keepers of Numbers to ensure that all our beans are accounted for and kept in their proper places. This peace-loving Beancounter enjoys movies, outdoor activities, and when not hunched over her desk, she's usually with her baby boy (aww) or just being a couch potato. Inspired by her mother (aww x 2), she uses her childhood expectation of her future self as a source of motivation.

Howie Tan

Howie Tan

Marketing Maestro

Quite possibly the only guy in the company with a pun-tastic name (we kid you not, we've heard him introduce himself right off the bat with "Hi, Howie doing today?"), Howie is one of our talented Marketing Maestros. He's usually hunched over his desk doing top secret marketing stuff, but when he's not, he can usually be found in the company of his family and friends, whom he believes matter most in his life. He also loves seeing the world and learning about different cultures, every so often jetting off to some distant land. Citing motivational speaker Nick Vujicic as his source of inspiration, Howie is a bodaciously rad bro whose motto is YOLO (I swear that's what he said in the questionnaire used to create this profile... YOLO. #SoRetro)

Jethro Wegener

Wordsmiths

One of our resident Wordsmiths, Jethro very clearly stands out from the rest of the SV Team, because he's... you know... freakishly tall. He's probably the most metal of us all, with a passion for heavy metal (the music genre, not radioactive substances) and tattoos. When he's not writing the Next Great Sci-Fi Novel, you can probably find this metalhead at the gym, a tattoo parlor, or in front of the TV and a gaming console. This "writer with ink" takes inspiration from Nelson Mandela, and is motivated by progress rather than perfection. And also new tatts.

Gatekeeper

Our resident Gatekeeper, Jia Yu shall deem you worthy of entry into our sanctum... or at least that's what she does when she isn't busy pulling double duty as our Quest Runner. When she isn't doing either of those things, she enjoys exploring the World Wide Web (not to mention the actual, physical world as an avid traveler). This cheerful and bubbly individual is motivated by her friends and family, and finds inspiration in local fashion blogger Melissa Celestine Koh.

When not concocting brilliant schemes to market The Next Big Thing for the company, he can often be found jogging, watching a movie, or simply hanging out with friends.

This chipper and determined individual is motivated by life itself, and is inspired by a number of greats, including Oscar Wilde, Vincent van Gogh, Anne Frank, Ellen Degeneres, and Nick Vujicic.

Marcus Tan

Marketing Maestro

A filial son through-and-through, Marcus looks up to his parents as his inspiration - his dad who went through hardship to support his family of 5, and his devoted mom who raised responsible, honest adults. Being a very open, friendly, and all-round chill guy, this Marketing Maestro loves spending time with friends and family, and keeps himself up to date with the latest music, no matter the genre. He's also motivated by his love for his family, and strives for the feeling that financial freedom brings. Meanwhile, he unwinds and relaxes by going fishing for some much deserved 'me' time. (Perhaps to catch a fish for family dinners? Aww!)

Nicolas is one of our Marketing Maestros, who is also our resident health nut. Passionate about calisthenics and adrenaline-inducing sports, he spends much of his time working out, and is motivated to "enhance the human condition." But don't let his rigorous fitness regime fool you. He's also an avid cook and baker, and is known to share delicious confectionaries with the office every now and then. This happy, self-disciplined, and motivated Maestro finds inspiration in futurist billionaire Elon Musk, and when he's not busy trying to become the perfect human specimen or the next Master Chef, he can usually be found enjoying a good book.

Rachel Tang

Marketing Maestro

Part of our Marketing Maestros division, Rachel has a wide variety of passions, including music, fashion, and movies (in fact she loves music and fashion so much she stated them twice in the questionnaire for this). When she's not creating marketing magic, she can usually be seen catching up on her YouTube channel subscriptions, or hanging out with friends (not sure if she's done both at the same time, we didn't ask). Despite her laidback demeanor, this creative Maestro is driven by the thought that life works in mysterious ways and that tough times are momentary speed bumps on the road to success. As such, she's continually working to become a better version of herself to prepare for what lies ahead. Finding inspiration in many notable names from various industries, her current inspirateur is fashion vlogger Sophia Chang.

One of our resident Wordsmiths, Raffino has a bit of an obsession with bleeding edge technology. Whenever he isn't busy crafting persuasive literature, he can be found either keeping up with the latest developments in technology, or plotting world domination. Motivated by Indian food, caffeine, and thoughts of ruling his own sovereign nation one day, this irreverent, and quite possibly megalomaniacal Wordsmith cites Victor Von Doom as a source of inspiration.

Part of the Wordsmiths team, Rebecca can often be found reading, keeping active, and learning new things…amidst all the adulting she does daily (read: boring-yet-necessary stuff like cooking and cleaning). Fondly described as selfless and rational by her family and friends – who are also her pillars of strength – Rebecca’s motivation comes from being accountable for her goals. She also looks to Liu Wen whenever she needs an extra dose of confidence, striving to emulate the Chinese supermodel’s poise and vivacity in whatever she does.

Travis Teo

Marketing Maestro

“Eat. Gym. Coffee. Repeat.” If Travis had his own line of t-shirts, that’s pretty much what would be on his best-selling shirt. He’s a simple guy who enjoys going to the gym, having coffee, and eating when he’s not busy at his desk as one of our Marketing Maestros. He professes to be “not very interesting,” but we think there’s more to Travis than meets the eye. Motivated by the principle that “there is only room for improvement,” Travis takes inspiration from Jesus and the lessons one can learn from His life, specifically how one can live and love unconditionally.
