Henk P. M. Hermans

President and General Manager of East-West Seed Philippines

Chartered Architect, RIBA (Royal Institute of British Achitects)

Having worked and lived in different countries across South-East Asia and Europe, I obtained multi-cultural insights from my experience and have been able to apply the knowledge gained to an array of international companies with footholds in both regions, ranging from design and engineering firms to hospitality and agriculture. I remain fascinated by diverse environments, thrive on developing and working in them and importantly continue to create them internally to strengthen our competitive advantage. Humbled by the positive exposure and knowledge I have gained, my goal is to share my experience and capabilities with the underprivileged and where I can see it is most needed.
