Today we bear the burden of sorrow and sadness as we mourn the loss of Han-Joo Him, the general manager of SigmaTEK Korea who passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday of this week.
As a colleague Han exemplified our company core values of helping others, engineering curiosity, high velocity and well done. As a member of the leadership team he showed exceptional commitment and loyalty to his team and our company. We particularly appreciated the way he worked with Jandre TerreBlanche ,the VP of Sales and Marketing, to navigate the challenges and opportunities in Korea. Together they had been making wonderful progress.
Jandre TerreBlanche had this to say about his colleague and friend:
“Being a general manager of SigmaTEK Korea was a way of life for Han. He loved visiting with customers and partners. Under his leadership we signed up 15 OEM’s and he was instrumental in retaining Hong Kong. Our market share has more than doubled in the last two years. His leadership style was keen and inviting, expecting no more from his team than what he was willing to do himself.”
For those who know Han better we are going to miss his friendship. Han was a very relational person and we are going to miss his presence very much. Our hearts and prayers go out to Han’s family and his team in Korea.
