Hello 🙂 my name is Neil and I’m a co-founder/CEO of this sustainable social enterprise from Thailand. The idea of Siam Organic was conceptualized when I was an MBA student at Sasin, which is where I met my co-founder, Palmmy. We thought a new type of entrepreneurship was needed to solve the world’s most pressing problems, and using business as a tool to solve social problems in a sustainable and scalable manner was something that appealed to us. Although I was born in Thailand, I moved to Australia when I was 14 years old and grew up in a small farm in Cootamundra. I have always been connected to nature and as a result pursued a degree in Environmental Engineering at University of Melbourne. Having worked in various sectors from environmental engineering to investment banking, I have tried to be innovative in the way we go about solving the problem of farmers’ poverty. In my spare time I enjoy all forms of exercises and dancing, particularly salsa and bachata!
Hi I’m Palmmy, a co-founder of Siam Organic. I’ve always been passionate about health and food, and this led to our core principle when I helped start Siam Organic — we only bring the healthiest and the most delicious products to our consumers.Before Siam Organic, I used to work in the finance and business consulting industry, but I couldn’t find any purpose in my daily career. Meeting Neil towards the end of my MBA in 2011 was a life-changing opportunity because we were searching for a business that could create real impact in a sustainable manner, and that was the beginning of this whole journey. I believe in learning new things every day, and developing new skills that I can use to make a difference in the world. I earned a bachelor’s degree in Finance (International Program) from Thammasat University, Thailand and an MBA from Sasin Graduate Institute of Business Administration from Chulalongkorn University. With my passion in the health business, my siblings and I have also created a sports complex in our local Bangkok neighborhood to promote healthy and active lifestyles. Did I mention that all of our employees at Siam Organic get free gym memberships at the sports complex too? I also love exploring nature in many ways, including scuba diving, rock climbing and photography.
Hello there, my name is Clint! I’m an American who has lived all over the world. I earned my degree in International Development and Management from Lund University in Sweden, and have worked on several agricultural development projects in the USA, Middle East and East Africa. Before joining Siam Organic, I lived in Rwanda for three years working with One Acre Fund, an NGO that assists small-scale farmers with increasing their yields and profits. I’m thrilled to continue my career in agricultural development with the amazing team at Siam Organic, helping our farmers become more prosperous through sustainable organic farming. I’m Siam Organic’s Business Development Manager, working to build external partnerships and increase the positive impact we generate for our growing network of farmers. I’m passionate about good food and cooking with great ingredients, and I’m an active food blogger. I’ve also taken up Muay Thai boxing since moving to Thailand – and combining intense exercise with amazing organic food has been a fun way to achieve a fit body and healthy mind!
Hi, my name is Khao Hom! I joined Siam Organic because of its vision to transform the lives of Thai farmers. Working with Siam Organic has made me a much healthier person – I began to learn how to take care of my health, eat organic food, and exercise regularly. I also learned to purchase only high quality products that are good for both myself and the environment. The work that I do has brought me closer to Thai farmers. Being born and raised in Bangkok, I never had any chance to be close to nature. During my work here, I have seen the beauty of nature, have helped plant rice for the first time, and have experienced the joy of the farmers’ lifestyle. I’m contributing every day to make sure that we are working not only to improve farmers’ lives, but also to bring the best quality products to our customers.
Hi, I’m Sabina! I graduated with a degree in Food Science and Technology from Prince of Songkhla University here in Thailand. I’m 25 years old and grew up in Phangnga in the southern part of the country. My hometown is in the countryside where people are close to nature and live healthy lives – and eating organic food is an important part of their active lifestyles. I’m happy to be part of the Siam Organic team, helping to bring you amazing organic produce directly from our farmers. As Siam Organic’s Operations Manager, I’m focused every day on ensuring the best quality of our products. It’s not enough for our food just to be organic – all of our products must also meet the highest standards of excellence required for your healthy diet!
Hello, my name is Nhon! I earned a bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Thammasat University, Thailand. I want to make a real difference and apply my knowledge and skills at work. Siam Organic’s vision and values are really interesting and challenge me to do something difficult, so I’m happy to be a part of the Siam Organic team. During my work here, I widen my knowledge and perspectives in the field. I have great experiences working with the farmers and dealing with many people. For my work in the future, I hope to be at the forefront of driving changes and transforming people’s lives. I want every day of my work to be meaningful and never ordinary!
