Derrick Persson

Data and Systems Manager

After graduating, Derrick spent time working for a social venture aimed at empowering the world's poor.

There, he gained insight into social entrepreneurship and the power it has to make a global impact. He then spent time travelling where he visited Gawad Kalinga, one of World Housing's builder partners. Hearing the stories and seeing the difference a community can make, Derrick knew he'd found what he was looking for and joined the World Housing team. Derrick brings a unique combination of operations, technical expertise and social entrepreneurship to the team and is inspired to cultivate social change.
