    Last thing on Friday I was pulled ut of a meeting to hear an announcement.

    My VP is leaving and a replacement is starting in April. They do not take prisoners at that level and this must have been planned for a while in order for a replacement to be found with the experience and knowledge needed.

    There were women crying and others looking shocked.

    As I type this I can see the railway those poor bugger would have travelled up to Thailand on :oops:

    I am keeping my head down and delivering my projects :eek:

    We will have to see what the new guy wants but I will miss the old guy - he was a bit eccentric but a lovely person and this will be killing him. When I was deciding which job to take I met up with him in Bangkok and he wrote on the back of an envelope the calculations of my salary in Singapore less tax and in the UK with another company. He handed it to me and said, "Remember this job is in Asia" which was the deal maker.

    The IT Director told my boss recently he has a job for me on his team at HQ if she could not find me work I wanted to do and was getting bored but I really do not want to move back to Belgium and want to stay in Asia.

    Our business unit is supposed to be tripling revenues globally from 2.5 billion GBP to 7.5 billion between now and 2015 with the Asia region being a big part of that - they must want someone more business rather than science focused at VP is my guess.

    There's a tear in my eye reading through the story, like marra.

    Any rumours on who the replacement might be? Don't think I can wait until April to find out marra.

    you had the guts to `get on your bike` and make a big break, which many on here wouldn`t.

    good luck, and hope your job is safe
