Donn is a problem-solver, translator and connector. Using a human-centred approach, he searches for elegant solutions to existing problems. Donn is passionate about making the world a better place through people and technology.
Donn has worked in both the private and public sector since graduating from the NUS Business School. Most of his roles have been quite mundane in the logistics and supply chain area (plan, source, make, deliver) but he has also been involved in business development, developing policies and partnerships, product development, spying, mentoring and coaching.
Before Covid-19, he was headhunted by a Latin American MNC to lead their supply chain team as part of their expansion into Asia. Due to covid, the expansion plans were suspended and Donn took this opportunity to pivot by immersing himself in the Fintech SG programme and picking up new knowledge, skills and network. Since completing the programme, he has continued to hone his skills/knowledge and is currently a co-founder of Sehat Health, a medtech blockchain focused on democratising data.
