Brand Today

March 2016 Issue

Dear Friends & Families of Brand Now Asia,

With the International Women’s Day falling in March, this entire month is usually dedicated to honor women's achievements. With this in mind, we’d like to share with you a little more about our two co-founders.

In addition to being the co-owner of Brand Now Asia, Pacharee Pantoomano, or Nui, handles marketing and strategy. She also runs BNOW.org., recognized as one of Bangkok’s leading networking group supporting startups and SMEs. BNOW.org was recently awarded the social enterprise status by the TSEO (Thai Social Enterprise Organization). Bnow.org aims to help 'Awesome Entrepreneurs Unite' with the Entrepreneur Now Awards 2016 scheduled for October 2016.

Kittima Sethi, or Tinny, looks after operations and media relations and is our 'Queen of Content.' She also runs a networking group, IPN (International Parenting Network) in Bangkok and Phuket.

As working mothers, both women are strong believers in work-life-family balance.
