Pascale Dillon, Chief Operating Officer, joined UWCSEA in 2018. A graduate of EDHEC business school, she also has an MBA from Aston University in the UK. Pascale is also a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Corporate Directors.
Pascale’s professional career has spanned the globe and includes more than 20 years in Asia. Having begun in Paris in consulting, in 1998 she took on a senior finance role for Walt Disney in Hong Kong. There she met her husband Brad and the family subsequently made Singapore their home. Senior roles in consumer products and hospitality followed, and Pascale enjoyed the challenges of building brands across multiple markets in a complex and fast-changing region.
Throughout her career she has also been passionately interested in education, and was a founder-member of Aidha in Singapore, a charity which supports financial education for domestic helpers, equipping them with the skills and finance to run small businesses when they return home. More recently Pascale has been Director of AkarakA, a charity offering tertiary education support in Asia for gifted children whose economic success will help lift their families and communities.
In joining UWCSEA Pascale feels she has therefore taken the next logical step, combining her extensive professional experience with her passion for learning. Pascale is strongly aligned with the UWC mission and believes in the transformative power of education, which has a special resonance in Asia where so many are held back by its absence.
Pascale and Brad love sport, especially tennis and skiing, as well as music, travel and quality time with their three children, Alice, Camille and Cooper.
