DRVR Advisory Board

We are delighted to announce the formation of our new advisory board. We welcome the new board members. The descriptions of each member can be found below or on our website www.drvr.co

What is the role of an advisory board?

Advisory Boards consist of a group of individuals selected by the entrepreneur who provide advice and help the company succeed. They are separate from a formal Board of Advisors. Entrepreneurs can select advisors based on needed skills or voids to fill within their company.

Why is DRVR establishing this now?

DRVR has grown significantly since our launch in 2015 and we are now operating across five markets. We have established a strong network of partners, investors and friends who were informally giving advice. We felt that now was the appropriate time to establish the board to help advise David and the management team in Bangkok.
