Working together to attain our goals

Leah Perkins

Global Marketing and Digital Manager

As the Global Marketing and Digital Manager for Performance Materials I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with colleagues located all over the world.

The teams that I work with are made up of people who have different strengths and skills and, whether on a local or global project, we work together to attain our goals.

Most recently we launched the first-ever campaign in support of the automotive segment working closely with our global digital, communications and brand teams as well as local sales and marketing teams.  While I knew the goals which needed to be met and elements which would need to be implemented, it was the other teams which helped define the details.  The campaign was successful thanks to their support, collaboration and guidance in their specialist areas.

I am very lucky to get to work with so many amazing individuals and for a company which empowers its employees, trusts in their leadership skills and believes learning never stops.  I am excited by what the future at Coats holds.’

‘One team’ culture

Yashmiin Golaup

Corporate Communications Executive

One of the reasons I enjoy working for Coats is because my role involves me working with a wide range of colleagues in several different countries around the world including China, America, Spain and Mexico, to name just a few. Being at Coats has taught me the importance of ensuring that the same message is understood no matter what country material is launched in. This could only have been achieved through working with my global colleagues and learning about the different ways audiences understand imagery, languages, and culture. I appreciate Coats’ ‘One Team’ culture and how people have a willingness to help one another, regardless of time zones and geographical location.

The importance of positive teamwork

Tram Anh Tran

Managing Director, Indonesia

In the 16 years I have worked at Coats, I have experienced and recognised the importance of Positive Teamwork in doing my job. To me this means a diverse group of people at different levels, from different backgrounds, with different experience and interests, going in the same direction to achieve the same goals.

It requires each team member to use their strengths in a smart and constructive way to achieve the most benefit for the team and in return they are motivated when they achieve success.

I enjoy meeting people from different functions and departments both locally and globally. There are lots of new things I can learn from them and new challenges I can face. Most importantly, the people I have met are friendly, open, talented and committed. I believe it makes Coats feel like home when you go to other units.
