Life at Hexagon: Featuring Adam Phong

In this blog post we are pleased to feature Adam Phong. Adam is a Project Manager for the Hexagon PPM division based out of Kuala Lumpur. He is also a recent APAC Outstanding Award recipient.


Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you came to work at Hexagon PPM?

Prior to joining Hexagon PPM, I was a Project Manager with IBM (GTS Group) and subsequently, an IT Transformation Management Consultant with KPMG Malaysia. During my time as a Management Consultant, I was involved in the development of a Transformation Blueprint (Industrial 4.0) for a Government agency. My research on the upcoming disruption trends (at that time) lead me to some of Hexagon’s Digital Transformation solutions such as Digital Twin, Connected Worker and Operational Twin. The rest as they say is history…


What did it mean to you to win the Outstanding Achiever award this year?

I’m absolutely thrilled by the awards. A Project Manager’s contribution can be difficult to quantify and would often go unnoticed. The awards shows how Hexagon recognise and appreciate all form of contribution from its employees.


What’s one thing that surprised you about working at Hexagon?

The support and trust from management. At Hexagon, I have always had the opportunity to take on complicated and challenging projects with the full support from management.


What has been the most challenging part for you about WFH during COVID-19?

As I’m used to working from home, I’m not particularly affected by the WFH imposed arrangements during Covid-19.


What do you look forward to the most once life returns to normal (post COVID-19)?

Upon receiving the Outstanding achiever award, I promised to treat the team to a meal as an appreciation gesture (wouldn’t be possible to achieve the award without their fantastic support) – which is still pending due to the Covid-19 situation.

That and hiking and trail running, I’m an avid trail runner/hiker and would be hiking/trail running on a weekly basis pre-Covid-19.
