of leaders. Nominees should have no more than 15 years of
industry experience.
The inaugural award went to Infineum's Boon Ping Chia,
who was recently promoted to the role of Infineum Asia sales
director. Boon Ping has created strong partnerships with
key industry stakeholders, such as base-stock producers, to
broaden product options for lubricant marketers in Asia. He
also played a vital role in establishing Infineum's Business and
Technology Centre to serve the Chinese market.
Outside of China, Boon Ping has worked strategically to
ensure his Japan- and Singapore-based teams continue to
serve the diverse product needs of customers throughout
Asia-Pacific. He has a deep knowledge of the Asia-Pacific
market, customers and engine manufacturers, and possesses
excellent hands-on experience of Infineum technology. A
broad understanding of Infineum's manufacturing (additive)
processes and the importance of quality and reliability are
underpinned by technical rigor and commercial acumen.
Boon Ping is a mentor to many young Infineum colleagues, and he ably supported the setup of the Infineum
technology talent pool in Shanghai - to attract the highest
talent to the organization. He is an "important and credible
voice for Asia within the senior management team of
Infineum," and the company expects him to continue to
increase his influence on the Asia-Pacific lubricants and
additives market with his recent promotion.

Total Quartz EV Fluid provides specific technology for
the new generation of electric drivetrain. The Total Lubrifiants product was chosen as the 2019 F&L Asia Product
Development of the Year to recognise the company's
ground-breaking work in the lubrication of electric (EV)
and hybrid vehicles. Total Lubrifiants is the first player in
the industry to provide a concrete response to the rapid
developments in the automotive sector. The highly innovative Total Quartz EV Fluid product range will help vehicle
manufacturers design increasingly efficient electric and
hybrid vehicles and is a worthy winner of this year's award.
As hybrids and EVs become increasingly powerful and
their battery ranges and charging speeds improve, standard fluids are unable to maintain their robustness, heat
resistance, cooling capacity and safety. Total Quartz EV
Fluid includes 11 products formulated around four specific
features: dielectric properties, material protection properties,
thermal properties and standard lubrication.
Accepting the F&L Asia Product Development of the Year
award on behalf of Total was vice president of Automotive
Lubricants Thierry Gourault. Gourault is based in Singapore
and is responsible for worldwide automotive lubricants
activity. He joined Total in 1989 and previously held
positions in Paris as Total's Vice President for France and
as CEO of S-Oil Total Lubricants in South Korea.
We were also delighted to recognize the contribution
of Gary M. Parsons not only to F&L Asia, but also to the
industry at large, with a Lifetime Achievement award.
Parsons retired from Chevron Oronite on July 31, 2018,
following 37 years of outstanding service. During his career,
he has been involved in fuels research, consumer and commercial lubricants, product development, strategic account
management and business development, with assignments
in North America, Europe and Asia.
For the past 13 years, he has held the important role
of global OEM and industry liaison manager - leading
industry representation across many industry associations
and standards organizations, including ASTM, SAE, ACC,
STLE, CEC, CRC, ATC, AAA, JASO and JALOS.
Villena-Denton is editor-in-chief and CEO of F&L Asia
Ltd., headquartered in Hong Kong.
