Alvanson So

Head of HR, Manila, Canva

Vanson has been working in HR for 10 years fulfilling various roles that touch on an employee’s hire-to-retire lifecycle. Given the opportunity to work for a local traditional company, to working for a US-based offshore firm, then reaching the HR leadership team of a multinational high-tech industry, and now heading the HR Team for a billion-dollar start-up company, the challenge of balancing business priorities and the people’s agenda has kept him curious about the power of HR in helping companies reach its vision through its people.
