The Custodian of Movement
"Ever since I joined Total in India (LPG Division), every day has been a new challenge, with a sense of accomplishment when I finish. I will never forget my first day at Total when I was responsible for ensuring LPG supplies to one of our major customers, whose critical process could not be stopped, and the support extended by my superiors and their guidance in resolving the crisis. When I discussed the incident with my family, their immediate reaction was “you are in the right company”. No wonder I am still going strong even after 15 years at Total," said Kannan.
