I have had the privilege of leading corporate design and R&D teams, first for General Electric, and now for Tupperware Worldwide. With design centers in the USA, Belgium, & Singapore, we launch new products in over 100 countries worldwide. Having global perspective and understanding of WDO as a participant and past board member, I ask for your support to allow me to contribute to the new mission of WDO; to engage WDO members and the world design community to collaborate and utilize the power of Design as a tool for social improvement.
