Before initiating Tohe, Nguyen is creative director of Nguyencomm advertising and communication company since 2001. With deep experience and great ability of a leader, he was well recognized and collaborated with variety of local and international companies and organizations such as UNICEFF, Vietnam Airlines, EU,... When creating Tohe, his purpose was about building not only a traditional enterprise which considered making profit as the main target, but also a social enterprise working for community. From building to maintaining and developing Tohe was a long way with intensive difficulties, challenges but he always tries his best and stays consistent in purchasing his targets to the end.

It’s true that there were losses that can not be made up for. But what we earn a lot from people surrounding us are their love, support of material, intelligence, emotion,.. and amazing friends. Although all these things may not be enough to help Tohe survive and get through all obstacles, Tohe still wants to draw out a spectacular picture of beautiful society, which is not easy to implement. However, Tohe will never abandon and regret about losses or disappoint of our choice.”- shared Mr. Nguyen.
