No more trips to Vietnam

Well, last week was a big week for me. I decided to leave FCG and return to work for Coca-Cola Enterprises. I had been talking with the people I know at CCE since late last year about working with them and they finally had a position open up a couple of weeks ago. I'm excited to go back there and work on the business side of the company versus the IT side. I start on Apri l16.

I will be working in the Revenue Management Department as the Forecasting & Planning Manager. Essentially I will be the business process owner, facilitator, and coordinator of all forecasting and planning activities within the company. That involves working with all of the regional and corporate business units to ensure that the tools and related processes are thoroughly integrated across finance, revenue management, supply chain, logistics and sales. I will also be responsible for managing all of the support tools and solutions, so I still get to be a Project Manager.

This is a big job with lots of potential and a great group of people to work with. I already know almost everyone on this team already they were the business sponsors for the IT projects I managed when I worked in IT for CCE.

FCG has been a terrific place to work and this was not an easy decision. I have loved working with the team in Vietnam and I will miss them dearly, but ultimately this was a personal decision and is best for both me and my family. I thank everyone at FCG for helping me learn so much.

  4. Hi Andy,

    It's been a pleasure to work with you on your last project in FCG.

    I wish you good luck on the next step in your career path.

    But wait, do you really like Vietnam that much? If so then I have an Easter Egg for you
    Coke has an office and a factory in Vietnam, only about 20km from FCG Vietnam Office!


  5. We will miss you a lot Andy.There is a Coca Cola Company here in Vietnam, and you may come back ^_^

  6. Dear Andy,

    I’d like to thank you for the time I worked at Chesterfield. You are not only a good manager but also a wonderful person. You are the most special one I’ve ever met.
    Now, you have a new path for your career but I hope we will see each other again. I wish you are successful in your new job.

    All the best,

Dublin & Beyond

I arrived in Dublin Wednesday evening. Somehow the 1-hour flight from Heathrow made it in 30 minutes. How is that even possible? I'm staying at The Marker Hotel again. I stayed at The Marker when I first came to Dublin two years ago. Back then, it was their grand opening. This is one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in. Incredible service (more on that in a bit). Thursday and Friday I was teaching a 2-day Tableau class at the Facebook office. Since I was last here, Facebook has moved into a new office right next to The Marker. Facebook Dublin's new home From the 5th floor looking down at the cafeteria The rooftop has spectacular views of the entire city Thursday evening, my good friend Ivan took me to a local eatery called Lolly & Cooks. We kind of had to go here since nothing else was open. All of the pubs stop serving food at like 5:30pm. It's strange! We enjoyed a light meal of fish before taking on these amazing desserts. I went for the r

Double Chocolate Chip Dream Cookies

If you love chocolate, these are the cookies for you. The name says it all...Double Chocolate Chip Dream Cookies. Indeed, they are a dream! It takes about 10 minutes to make the batter, then eight minutes to cook. You can be eating these in less time than it takes to watch an episode of The Office. To make them vegan:  Use 1/4 cup of applesauce (from Whole Foods in the UK) for each egg Replace the butter with margarine (make sure it's stick margarine) Use dark chocolate chips (you can get a 2KG bag of chocolate chips at Costco).  Unlike last time, when I used tub margarine and melted it too much, use stick margarine and let it come to room temperature to soften. This made a HUGE difference.  They're super delicious! Enjoy!
