Project and Operations Manager

Monna Munoz — Project and Operations Manager

“Nothing is complicated. Break it down, prioritize, find efficiencies. When everything runs smoothly, there’s space for creativity and productivity.”

It takes courage to think differently, and Mona knows it. At age 5, this Richard Branson fan built a child-sized rocket from grocery cartons and duct tape. At 19, she dropped a promising nursing career to pursue her love of tech at an internet marketing firm—one she would soon come to lead. In 2016, Mona launched her own web development agency. With her “Just do it” mantra, Mona’s approach to work is singularly strategic and systematic.

Now Project Manager at PaperplaneCo, Mona goes out of her way to keep all stakeholders happy, juggling multiple projects and teams with enviable ease. Mom to a teenager and two snuggly cats, Mona enjoys long walks and keeping up with Elon Musk’s Mars project. Warning: With her unflaggingly upbeat attitude and ace organizational skills, Mona’s productive vibe can be contagious.

Demi Plettenburg
Account Manager

Demi Plettenburg — Account Manager

“Take a leap of faith – you will achieve beyond your imagination.”

Story-telling has been inseparable from Demi’s life: at the age of twenty-two, she had spent a year traveling from the south of Italy to the Scottish Highlands as a Junior Producer, taking words from a script and bringing them to life. After a tour around the Dutch film industry, Demi was yearning to put her skills to commercial use – she convinced her professors at University of Amsterdam to let her be the first ever student to study remotely, and flew from the Netherlands across continents to Singapore.

In Singapore, Demi worked at OneConnect Financial Technology, where she oversaw the redesign of the Customer Experience Center and managed video production, interior design, and walkthroughs for prospects. When the CEC later became a project for PaperplaneCo, Demi, utterly inspired by the PPCO team’s process of crafting compelling stories, knew she had to be a part of this creative team.

After receiving her degree in Digital Media, Demi is now the Account Manager at PaperplaneCo, where she ensures customer success in day-to-day client communication, and in projects that she oversees. Demi’s experience across fields has allowed her to experience a variety of perspectives first-hand, giving her the unique ability to empathise with clients and understand their needs. Outside of work, Demi is thoroughly enjoying her life in Singapore – the only way to make it even better would be getting a puppy!

Wawa Gilewski
Market Intelligence

Wawa Gilewski — Market Intelligence

“Market analysis isn’t only research and data collection. It’s the “So what?” phase that counts. Anyone can collect information, the real value lies in how you interpret it and how you present it.”

Market Intelligence is Wawrzyniec’s bread and butter, a skill that he first picked up as a management consultant at Deloitte Poland in 2014. In 2017, Wawa (as he prefers to be called), took the independent route and began to provide freelance consulting services. A lawyer by education, Wawa’s analytical skills backed by his deep interest in business strategy help him identify patterns and interpret trends to find new opportunities. Heavily influenced by the MECE (Mutually Exclusive Collectively Exhaustive) principle, Wawa uses lateral thinking and problem-solving techniques to arrive at insights faster.

At PaperplaneCo, Wawa’s thorough business analysis and in-depth market research help us create content that capitalizes on our clients’ unique strengths and sets them apart from the competition. Wawa is outgoing, helpful, and always trying to liven up the atmosphere with his quirky sense of humour.

Hanh Lam
Finance Operations Assistant

Hanh Lam — Finance Operations Assistant

“I’m a fast learner. My willingness to learn has exposed me to different sides and perspectives of things. It helps me approach my work in a more holistic way.”

No timesheet, no money! As one of the backbones of PaperplaneCo’s finance operations, Hanh is known for her attention to detail and her penchant for numbers. Apart from her meticulous nature, Hanh is a warm, lively individual who loves working with people. Although she initially studied computer science in university, she soon realised that working in front of computers would not be the right fit for her, and hence chose to move into nonprofit work, which she found more aligned with her ideals of experiencing life and helping people.

Hahn’s extensive background working at grassroots and nonprofit organisations in Vietnam and India has equipped her with strong operations and people skills. Her years of unique experiences across different countries, cultures, and sectors have honed both her critical thinking and detail-oriented nature and have taught her the core life principle: Treat others the way you want to be treated.

When Hanh isn’t busy managing operations and finance, she enjoys indulging in photography, documenting snippets of her day-to-day life through her snapshots. To make the most of the luxurious beaches of Australia, she hopes to pick up swimming and scuba diving in the near future.

Jenny Soffel
Editor and Content Strategist

Jenny Soffel — Editor and Content Strategist

“My purpose is to provide content with greater meaning. You can’t do that without making an effort to understand how readers perceive you, without knowing where they’re coming from.”

Jenny’s writing career began early, when as a 6 year old she wrote and performed “Mama, Don’t Nag!”, a song that would soon become family legend. Driven to bring to light the stories that go unheard, Jenny pursued a Master’s degree in Journalism. She joined CNN as a freelance journalist just as the digital content arena was heating up. With a sharp nose for story and expert analytical skills, she soon took on multiple roles, launching the digital presence of a TV channel in London and working with other news outlets such as The Independent, the BBC, ZDF and more.

Until 2018, Jenny worked for the World Economic Forum, where as Platform Owner and Digital Content Lead she covered Davos, lead WEF’s content and social media strategy, and launched ten new websites — all while managing WEF’s content management system. Jenny now works as an independent content strategist and senior writer for brands and media organisations. Kind, witty and with a penchant for unexpectedly bursting into song, there’s never a dull moment with Jenny around!

Simeen Mirza
Copywriter

Simeen Mirza — Copywriter

“It’s all about that moment when a reader’s eyes light up.”

Simeen was 7 when her father gifted her a diary replete with lock and tiny key. A writer (and future stationery addict) was born. Writing would continue to pursue her at every stage of life. While earning her MBA in Finance and Marketing, she wrote press releases and launched the campus blog. As a Business Valuation Analyst at Deloitte, she became the go-to person for creating industry analyses, research papers and knowledge bases.

When motherhood arrived, Simeen took a break from corporate life, and writing finally caught up with her. It has since blossomed into a full-time occupation and she has written for a variety of clients, from a US-based mutual fund to foodpanda and the World Bank. Her favourite part of the process is immersing herself in new worlds and emerging with fresh insights. Simeen likes to spend weekends eating out with family and escaping into the world of diaspora fiction.

Traffic Manager

Fidela Marasigan — Traffic Manager

She is now doing what she does best—managing PaperplaneCo’s traffic. Her attention to detail along with her resourcefulness and reliability truly make her an effective team player.

Friendly and easygoing, Fidela loves to extend her help to others to ease the process whenever needed. At the end of the day, seeing each project to fruition and keeping her team members always on track is what matters the most to her.

Syahmi Ruzman
Finance

Syahmi Ruzman — Finance

“Valuations are based on estimates. The goal is to be approximately right instead of precisely wrong.”

A freelance guitar instructor until two years ago, Syahmi spent his free time learning about investing. What started off as a means to eventually retire, soon revealed itself to be a calling. Keen on immersing himself in an environment where business was the native language, Syahmi began preparing for the ACCA exams to qualify as a Chartered Accountant.

An internship as an auditor soon followed, and just three months later, Syahmi landed a full-time role and took on the Paperplane account. Adept at abstract and analytical thinking, Syahmi is an admirer of Thomas Sowell and Ayn Rand’s work. Whip-smart, with a dry sense of humour, Syahmi likes to spend weekend mornings watching MMA with his friends.
