Choedpong's expertise lies in the design, creation, and strategic management of platforms. Platform is a business model that has disrupted the world in every industry from transport (Uber), hospitality (AirBnB), commerce (Alibaba), and banking (PayPal), to name a few. Choedpong has worked in, managed, and created quite a few platforms, including Windows for IoT (while at Microsoft), Kaidee (as director of product), and a tourism startup (as an entrepreneur). Choedpong also draws on his background in innovative thinking, particularly his experience facilitating Design Thinking projects, as the art and science of platform defy conventional business and management principles and require constant fresh thinking.
An innovator by nature, a technologist by training, and a businessman by passion, Choedpong holds a U.S. patent for a computer simulation model that helps revamp the operations of a large commercial bank, has created and run teams of software developers (in Agile), and has weathered through many business environments. Choedpong enjoys occasional speaking and consulting engagements.
In addition to technical, managerial, and entrepreneurial experiences, Choedpong has gained deep and diverse perspectives from his cross-cultural journeys. He's originally from Bangkok (Thailand) and has spent 15 years in the U.S. and U.K. before returning to Asia. Choedpong is bilingual in English and Thai.
Choedpong holds a Master’s degree in Management Science and Engineering from Stanford University and a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science (Honors) from Grinnell College.
