Our People

Executive Team

“A good head and a good heart is a formidable combination” – Nelson Mandela

As it has been in many successful commercial enterprises, it was the common thread of friendship, mutual respect and loyalty that provided the spark to begin a new journey called Tin Htay, and as the company grows, these core values become even more significant.

At the core of the Tin Htay business is our team and the sum of our parts will determine our success.
