FoongLing Chin

Partner with the Contaminated Site Management Practice in Malaysia

The majority of my 17-year career has been spent working in consulting, the last six of which have been at ERM. What really attracted me to come and work for ERM was a combination of its reputation as an international organization and its large global footprint; a factor that brings with it a wealth of opportunity.

I was also interested in the company’s structure as a Partnership, that had its own Partnership Program giving employees the opportunity to develop and join it. In fact that is exactly what I have done in being promoted from Senior Consultant to Partner via the Partner in Training Program.


During my time at ERM I am particularly proud of a number of things. Firstly, to have been given the trust and opportunity to be taken onto the Partner in Training Program, and then to graduate from it. I have also been able to lead and grow the Contaminated Site Management (CSM) business in Malaysia where I now manage a team of 11 people. I am responsible for growing the CSM business in Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam and ultimately across South East Asia as well as managing major contracts for the region.

ERM is a reputable international consultancy with a global footprint. At its core, ERM is a sustainable environmental consultancy company. We have a global strategy that everyone is working towards achieving.

ERM is different from the other consultancies in that it has sustainability at its core. We collaborate around the world to ensure we are providing the best deliverables possible while at the same time having the freedom and trust to help design my own career path. My colleagues are world class consultants with a strong commitment that enables healthy internal competition that our clients benefit from and ensures the very best. ERM is a fast-growing performance-based company that always highlights achievement and innovation.
