Director, Hanoi based
Jimmy Pham has been a pillar of the Hanoian community for over 22 years. Born in Saigon but raised in Sydney Jimmy keeps a foot in both camps which has allowed him to successfully operate in the hospitality sector, in Vietnam, for over 20 years. Jimmy’s long history operating the KOTO social enterprise (the first vocational training program in Vietnam), has allowed Jimmy to not only develop extensive experience in the social justice space but also vast business networks within Vietnam. His high visibility among both expats and local Vietnamese has long been an asset that he has utilised by mentoring socially inclusive businesses into thriving institutions in Hanoi through the Centre for Social Initiatives Promotion. Jimmy brings diversity, he brings passion, but above all, he brings a strong sense of the importance of international partnerships in making Vietnam the amazing place that he has always known that it is .
