Christy Davis is the head of the new Asia P3 Hub, an open space for multi-sector collaboration based in Singapore. Reinforcing the importance World Vision places on partnerships, the launch of the Asia P3 Hub in July 2016 is an innovative venture which brings together business, government, academia and non-profit organizations to collectively generate innovative market-based development solutions for transformational change in communities across Asia Pacific. The initial thematic focus is the area of water, sanitation and hygiene.
She made the jump from corporate to full time humanitarian work at World Vision in March 2011 after working for UNDP immediately following the Asian tsunami, building on previous positions in the public and private sectors. Christy holds an Executive MBA, and graduated in the first cohort with a Masters in Tri-Sector Collaboration from Singapore Management University. Originally from the US, she has made her home across four countries in Asia Pacific for more than 25 years.
