新加坡人。將世人對廁所與衛生視為禁忌之談的成見打破,Jack從2001年開始將他獨有的幽默與實際數據合而為一、將這個話題帶進世界媒體的中心。

四十歲時,他毅然決然投入社會工作中,並在1998年成立了「新加坡廁所協會」(RAS),處理了很多髒亂公廁的設計、建物結構和訓練不良的清潔工問題。體認到全球對於相關問題的需求後,Jack在2001年成立了「世界馬桶組織」(WTO),並以此做為各單位一個相互學習的機會、並利用媒體和企業的支持,回過頭來影響政府去宣揚健全衛生制度和公共健康政策的重要。

獲獎無數的他,曾被TIME雜誌譽為「環境的英雄」,並持續用他自己的馬桶哲學改變世界的衛生環境。
Jack broke the global taboo of toilet and sanitation by bringing it to global media centre-stage with his unique mix of humour and serious facts since 2001.

After attaining financial independence at age of 40 as a businessman, he decided to devote the rest of his life to social work. Then he established the Restroom Association of Singapore (RAS) in 1998, which addresses the state of dirty public toilets in designs, building codes and poorly trained cleaners. Realising the need for a global body on the subject, Jack created the World Toilet Organization (WTO) in 2001 as a global network and service platform for toilet associations, academia, government, UN agencies and toilet stakeholders to learn from one another and leverage media and corporate support that in turn influenced governments to promote sound sanitation and public health policies.

With all his remarkable achievement, he was awarded the “Inaugural Singapore Green Plan Award”, “Social Entrepreneur of the Year”, and also named as “Hero of the Environment” by TIME, “Asian of the Year” by Channel News Asia and Reader’s Digest in 2009 and 2011.
