Alex joined Trinseo in June 2019. Not long after starting with Trinseo came the Coronavirus epidemic. In August 2021, Alex’s hometown of Yangzhou, China experienced a sudden outbreak. He had no choice but to work from home during the lockdown. Alex’s day started in early mornings with voluntary work for the community’s anti-epidemic activities: making arrangements for testing, securing food residents needed and buying medication for the elderly… He would work until 08:00 each day, and then he began to devote his time to his work at Trinseo. In the evening, he began to coordinate the distribution of food, daily necessities, medication, etc.; paying attention to the testing arrangements for the following day; communication on WeChat….. and the list went on.

It was not until more than a month later that the lockdown was lifted. When asked to comment on the month of hard work, Alex said, “I would be lying if I said I was not tired.” But he was thrilled to be able to contribute and help during this crisis. He also thinks this is inseparable from his work at Trinseo.
