Good afternoon, Churpers. It has been a crazy January for us here at Netccentric. You may or may not have seen this news floating around your social media, but @bossming has decided to step down as the CEO of Netccentric after dedicating 11 years to this company.
This came unexpected to all of us, and it took a while for the news to sink in, especially for some of us who have worked closely with Ming since the very start. However saddening this is, many of the staff have took it to their Dayre to reminisce the best moments (even the little ones matter!) that they have shared with @bossming as they bid farewell to him.
Head on over to @nuffnangsg for a compilation of the posts Netccentrics have done and witness a side of Ming you’ve never seen!
But first, allow us to collate and present to you the Best of Ming as a tribute to him for his contribution in building up a company we’ve worked hard for and grown to love! ❤️
"A man who upholds traditions seriously"
There were certain traditions that Ming has always practiced with us throughout the years, 1️⃣ of them being our company trips that we go on after a year of hard work!
Chiang Mai 2012 🇹🇭
Hanoi 2014 🇻🇳
Bali 2015 🏄🏽🌴🦀
Guangzhou 2016 🇨🇳
Through these annual retreats, we got the opportunity to travel with our colleagues-turned-friends, bunk in with staff from the region & get to know them better through the various activities and meals! There was never a dull moment with these bunch of fun-loving people as we live the motto “Work Hard, Play Hard” 💪🏼
2️⃣ What’s Chinese New Year without a good reunion dinner with your family? We’re talking about OUR Netccentric family 😛😎 Every year without fail, Ming will bring us for a round of steamboat at his favourite hotpot place, the Magic of Chong Qing Hotpot! 🍲👨🏻🍳 Thank you for the lovely reunion dinner once again, Ming!
3️⃣ Something that we never forget to celebrate here at Netccentric – Birthdays! 🎂 Just last year, we turned a decade years old and celebrated it with a bang! We took this moment to celebrate our remarkable achievements over the past 10 years in social media, and none of this would have been possible without Ming’s vision for Netccentric all these while #welivesocial
4️⃣ And last but not least, ending off every year with a hearty Christmas celebration🎄🎁 One of the requirements that Ming made us follow through for our Secret Santa is to explain the gift that we got for someone! This made sense when Ming then explained to us the value of gifting, which made this practice so much more meaningful 😊
The office culture that was formed
The environment in our company has always been kept open and as friendly & positive as possible. It's one that Ming fought to build and strengthen these 11 years, on top of all the hard work we put in behind the scenes. And because of this, we have each other’s backs during the ups & downs, and it has allowed us to forged strong friendships with each other 💕
All these relationships would not have existed if not for the company and the values that @bossming created!
More than just an employee, but as friends
When our staff look back on old times, they are sure to say that they have been well-fed by @bossming's generosity with food 🍗🍛🥞
There are so many times where he would turn up with food for them (as pictured, his favourite chicken rice!), or take them out for a good lunch from time to time. It was through the little moments such as bringing food over, having lunch together and sharing thoughts with each other that showed how Ming truly cared for his employees, not just as an employee – but as a friend!
Under Ming’s vision of Netccentric in the coming years and his meticulous guidance, we have pushed for even more developments in all aspects of Netccentric --- the success is indeed yours to take!
We look forward to the next big thing that you will create. We know that this is not the end, but simply the start of a brand new chapter in your life! #ThanksBossMing
We have created a long e-card to Ming on Riplette, which is our way of bidding farewell to @bossming 😊 For a compilation of our staffs’ perspectives or to find out how some of our staff have 🔥🔥 roasted him (our favourite part hehe!), head on over to
Ending off with a quote that you always tell us,
The Best Is Yet To Be!
