Christine Tan is the Singapore-based anchor for CNBC's longest-running feature programme "Managing Asia" interviewing prominent CEOs and leaders of top companies doing business in Asia.
Tan has more than 17 years of experience in journalism, more than half of which was with CNBC. During her career, she has covered the business and financial market impact from major news events like the Asian Economic Crisis, the Dot Com Bubble Crash, 9-11 attacks in the US and SARS Outbreak.

The same program also won a finalist award at the 2004 New York Festivals for Coverage of a Breaking News Story. She was a finalist for Best News Anchor in 2001 and 2002 at the New York Festivals Awards and also a Best Current Affairs Presenter finalist at the 1997 and 2006 Asian Television Awards.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology and English and a Masters of Arts with Honors in Sociology from the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
Andrew Puzder got off the plane only a couple of hours before I sat down to talk to him. Still adjusting to the humidity of the Singapore climate, the CEO was in good spirits. Casually dressed for the interview, you would never have guessed he was a high powered corporate attorney. Puzder admits he never imagined he would end up in the fast food business.
Harish Manwani likes to spend time at the supermarket. Unlike most of us, he doesn't pace the aisles with his wife, but makes it a point to check out what's on the shelves. As the guy heading up Unilever in emerging markets in Asia and Africa, he tells me it's become pretty much a habit.
I've been asked many times to write something about what I think of the guests I interview on "Managing Asia." After close to eight years hosting the show, my personal encounters with CEOs and senior executives are always good talking points. What better way than to pen my thoughts out in a blog? I'm going to start with the President of Ping An Insurance, one of my guests on a recent trip to Hong Kong.
