Elise Van Middelem

As a Creative Brand Strategist, Elise Van Middelem, has 16+ years of experience developing large scale interdisciplinary projects — from conception through execution — for companies including Louis Vuitton, Nike, Samsung and Art Basel. She’s a leader in forging connections between disparate groups by uniting them under a common purpose.

It was during a trek in Upper Mustang, Nepal to plant 200 Apple trees for the local community that SUGi was born. SUGi is the inevitable coming together of her two passions, Art & Nature, under one purpose; to empower anyone anywhere in the world to become a biodiversity builder.
