MEET THE B1G1 TEAM
These are the people behind the B1G1 initiative, working to serve all B1G1 Members and create a world full of giving.
MASAMI SATO
FOUNDER & CEO
Masami is the epitome of ‘the power of small’ – she may be petite but she is passionate and power-packed. She is the guiding light behind almost every project at B1G1, from product design to member events to our team culture. Having lived in and traveled to over 30 countries across 5 continents, Masami’s experiences have given her a unique perspective on life and giving. It’s no wonder that she’s so loved and admired in the B1G1 community. You can find Masami's profile here.
JEFFREY TEO
GENERAL MANAGER
Jeffrey is behind most of the management and operational tasks at B1G1, ensuring that we act in compliance with local laws and regulations. Being a spreadsheets guru, he also adds a strategic edge to every element of our operations. On top of that, he manages our company’s finances and sustainability, ensuring that we’ll be here to grow with you in the long run. Outside of work, Jeffrey loves travelling and absolutely LOVES food.

Nhi manages all the marketing efforts at B1G1, and she carries a wide range of talents every marketer yearns – from creative design and video production to campaign management and tracking! She meticulously tends to our social media platforms daily and is the creator of all the beautiful posts, images, and emails you see. She also wins the Most Photogenic Award in B1G1. Don’t you simply love her smile!
STEPHANIE CHING
COMMUNITY MANAGER
Stephanie’s boisterous personality and bright smile delights us and everyone she interacts with every day. Beyond delighting, she makes it her everyday goal to inspire new members to become giving businesses and to help them see the impact of their giving more tangibly. She does this by working closely with all the B1G1 Worthy Causes to ensure the clarity of their listed projects and encouraging them to post lots of great updates.
JUN KIAT TAN

Jun Kiat manages the B1G1 system that we know and love, ensuring that it runs smoothly with continuous innovation. Dedicated to making your journey with B1G1 better every day, Jun Kiat is always there to fix any glitch in the system. Smart yet humble and down-to-earth, Jun Kiat brings laughter to the team with his light-hearted jokes and easy-going attitude.
JACK BLENKINSOPP
REGIONAL PARTNERSHIPS MANAGER (AMER & EMEA)
Jack first joined B1G1 at the Singapore headquarters in 2016. He is now based in Belfast and manages the partnerships in Europe and the Americas (read: that's HUGE). He loves connecting with B1G1 members and businesses who are keen to learn more about the B1G1 movement. Jack has an amazing ability to build connections and friendships with people from all walks of life. He also loves coffee. A lot.
LOUISA DYSON
REGIONAL PARTNERSHIPS MANAGER (APAC)
Louisa (or more affectionately known as Lou) has a great history with B1G1, joining as a member in 2016 when she ran her own business and subsequently bringing other members onboard due to her love of B1G1. When the opportunity arose, it was only natural that Lou should jump onboard as a member of the team. When Lou’s not excitedly sharing the B1G1 message, she’s hanging out with family & friends, enjoying new foodie spots, keeping fit and teaching pilates!
JACINTH TOH
MARKETING & ADMIN EXECUTIVE
As Nhi’s right hand woman, Jacinth specializes in producing inspiring videos that spread the stories of the B1G1 community far and wide. She also supports the team in a variety of administrative tasks. With her multiple responsibilities, Jacinth adds much horsepower and momentum to the growth of the giving movement. Her forthright and unassuming demeanour also creates lots of laughter in B1G1, making each day a joy-filled one!
ALEXANDRA Vincze
PARTNERSHIPS EXECUTIVE (AMER & EMEA)
Working closely with Stephanie, Alexandra serves all our Worthy Causes while helping B1G1 Members. Based in London, Alex is located more closely to our European members and Worthy Causes. She is a gentle soul who truly cares about people and causes around the world. She is always thinking about how to share great updates from Worthy Causes so that your giving becomes even more meaningful.
KIMBERLY KOUNTUR
PARTNERSHIPS EXECUTIVE (APAC)
Kimberly, or Kim as she prefers to be called, joined the team in search of a more purposeful role. To Kim, there is no greater joy than to see someone smiling because of the difference she was able to make in their life. As the first person members meet whenever they need support in her unofficial role as ‘Guardian of the Team Inbox’, Kim lives everyday with joy and purpose.
ELVIN MONICA
account executive
B1G1's longest serving team member, Elvin has seen the journey of B1G1 since the very beginning. She has grown together with B1G1 and she now works remotely while caring for her two young children. Behind the scene, Elvin tirelessly makes sure all your contributions are accounted and managed properly. Secretly though, she is a creative talent who produced many of the inspiring B1G1 videos in the early days.
SOPHIA LIM
PROJECT EXECUTIVE
Sophia’s quick wit, affable personality, and uninhibited laughter brightens up every room she walks into. Sophia works with our B1G1 Worthy Causes to ensure that each project is well represented and supported in their goals to make big impacts all over the world. She also supports the marketing team in outreach campaigns. Sophia loves catching up with friends, being with her dog, and night-time strolls.
OUR ADVISORS
PAUL DUNN
B1G1’s Co-Founder and the biggest cheerleader, Paul is a hugely respected and admired business leader who has helped make B1G1 what it is today. He’s a four-time TEDx speaker and frequently travels around the world, educating businesses about B1G1 and sharing inspiring business insights. Paul is also a member of one of the world’s leading think-tanks and has been honored with a Lifetime Service Award to the Accounting Profession in the UK (though he’s definitely NOT an accountant!). You can find Paul's profile here.
B1G1 GIVING BOARD
While B1G1’s membership initiative is run by the team members of a Social Enterprise that’s headquartered in Singapore, its Worthy Cause program is governed by the Board of B1G1 Giving Inc, a 501(c)(3) charity registered in the US. The B1G1 Giving Board also acts as advisers of the B1G1 Movement to help guide the overall initiative. Every member of B1G1 Giving Board brings significant expertise to the mix.
