Thuy

The kind beauty. “First, be friends.”
Connects and unifies cultural sides of this beautiful world. She has her head in the sky but her feet on the ground, is holding herself to an incredibly high standard but doesn’t get paralyzed or defeated when things get difficult.

Calling Toronto, Canada her home since already more than 30 years, is she our reliable muscles and brain back at her birth place in South East Asia. Here she manages, among other ventures, our affiliated firm, the Blissful Company Ltd., in HCMC.

Robert

The big heart. “You’re crazy my dear, you must go to Berlin.”
After his studies in the green heart of Germany and later Austria’s capital, he followed that inexplicable urge to further shape himself at a place that breathes life more intensely, Berlin. He’s been happy since. Especially with the fact that Berlin has two airports. Still. (sigh..)

What still makes him happy though is the little firm that he is running with the family: GERMANBEAUTYLAB

Tuan

The relentless optimist. “I’ve been working in the industry for so long, I can teach dinosaurs how to create and run lean and agile systems.”
Having grown up in the heart of a still divided city, he now lives happily with his beautiful wife in one of the greener and quieter neighborhoods of modern Berlin.

Being very experienced in the management of technical systems, the main focus of his professional life has been production management and the planning and control of customer orders. Talents that he developed further by founding various ventures of his own.

Carol

The producer. “Movies are more and less polished windows into the creators soul.”

Matthias

The realist. “Make love, not war.”
Someone who’s holding onto a book not just for references. Having seen two opposite sites of this beautiful world, he has for years been living with one leg in Africa, while the other is in a beautiful wine producing area of Germany.

His extensive expertise from the security, development cooperation and strategic communications sector gives him a comprehensive understanding of the current challenges in a hybrid world.
