EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE 2020
I hail from Klang, Malaysia – the city well known for the infamous bak kut teh and dark-sauced hokkien mee!
My family and I moved to Denmark some 15 years ago on expatriation with my previous employer, the Maersk Group.
I currently work for an international technology company for the maritime industry. Outside of work, I am a board member of the Nordic Chinese Chamber of Commerce and a member of the advisory board of Copenhagen Business School (International Business in Asia). Socially I am active in racket sports – badminton, squash, and an avid golfer.
I’ve originated from a small town called Teluk Intan in Perak. We are well-known for our leaning clock tower and we have the best “chee cheong fun” in Malaysia (rice noodle roll with yummy savory filling) – look it up if you are in doubt :o)
I’ve relocated to Denmark in the end of 2016 and I work for the Mærsk Group. After being in Denmark for a while, I’ve grown to enjoy predicting the season-of-the-day and the beautiful people in this country. I live for food and travelling which is the best way to learn the different culture around the world.
I was born in Penang and raised in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. I am working for AP Møller Maersk and relocated to Copenhagen from Kuala Lumpur 3 years ago. Met my husband here in Copenhagen, Anders Vendrup, and we have a lovely Yorkie named Blåbær. I love to explore food, enjoys singing, squash, and board games!
A familiar face in MDA, I look forward to contribute to its many activities. I enjoy the camaraderie among the people who volunteer and work hard to make the club appealing to its members
Catherine Putzeys – Exco Member
I grew up in Pontian, Johor – South Malaysia. I am happily married to Jan Putzeys (a Belgian) and we moved to Denmark as expatriates in 2002.
We took a ‘break’ in 2007 with a 3-year exciting stint in Panama. I love golf, badminton, singing and enjoy oil painting in my leisure time.
