Is as cool as a cucumber. Seldom the first on set, but once he shows up sparks are spraying. Resolves developmental tasks with perseverance and diligence. Minimalist. On weekends he races around curves with his motorbike.

Steven Chiu

Is very smart and a quick study. Enjoys solving problems. Always lends a helping hand. Explains things so well, the customers don’t even need help anymore. No concept is too complex for this engineer. Permanently jetlagged. He also speaks Chinese. Beware of his strong hits on the tennis court. His secret: he sings along when he is alone in the car.
