She ACED it!

I was told about the news the other night and took it lightly; though at the back of my mind, I knew that it would create impact on me one way or another.

But a few moments ago, the formal announcement (through email) was made, our Managing Director has been promoted as head of the Region effective October 1, 2011. Even before I opened the attachment, I knew what it was about, with my heart pounding, I read the details and smiled, amazed and dumbfounded. Yes, it is official, she's been promoted.
Don't get me wrong, I am extremely happy for our big boss... it is no question that she deserves it (I knew way before that she's the one to fill the post because it's been vacant for quite a while)! However, it got me to think really hard, what will happen to us?

I have overheard her say to one of the managers "D_ _ _ _ (her name) is not ACE (our company's nickname)". True, it is not her, but she made things possible, she gave us great direction, inspiration, etcetera etcetera.

It's a happy and a bit of sad moment knowing that we have barely a month to spend with her since she'll be flying to our regional office and be there. Nevertheless, I know that everything happens for a reason and that we should be happy for her.

And eventhough I do not directly report to her, she has definitely inspired me and helped drive me to be at my best all the time. I will truly miss her. Hats off to you, Ms. Managing Director!
