Business Strategist turned entrepreneur, Athan is the Founder and Managing Director of Three Thousand Thieves, helping create new opportunities for coffee and the people who dedicate their lives to it.
He's helped guide Australia’s largest businesses such as Google, NAB, Telstra, Myer, and AAMI become more human-centric and understand their strategic opportunities with their customers. His attention is now focused on ensuring Melbourne is world-famous for its coffee and the people who dedicate their lives to it. "Specialty coffee is the rise of a trend where people are beginning to realise the value in quality bean and roasting production. We want to make sure Melbourne and Australia are known as the epicentre".
When asked what drives him, his default quote is one stolen from kiwi scientist Sir Ray Avery: “You’re born with 30,000 days to live. The best life strategic planning I can give you is to think about that”
