In 1997 I returned to Viet Nam with British American Tobacco as HR manager and then Reginal HR Director. In 2000 I joined KPMG in an HR Reginal role then moved to Singapore in 20012 with SAP Markets. I returned to Viet Nam in 20013 to start HR2B.

I established HR2B in 2003 to bring world class human resources consulting service to business in Viet Nam. Along the way we have branched out into expatriate relocations, international moving and real estate. Since 2008 I have refocused on building the HR2B team into a market leader in Viet Nam HR.

Having worked in corporations across Asia for over 10 years I have a good understanding of what our customers want. I keep up to speed with changes in the Viet Nam market through regular client meetings and networking presentations. As a "Fellow" of the Australian Institute of Human Resources, I keep my up to speed with the latest in global human resources.
