Starting in 1993 from his base in Singapore, John Thet has gradually and consistently developed several multi media organisations dedicated to the promotion of safe recreational and scientific scuba diving, and the conservation of the worlds oceans.
Beginning with an initial focus on the Asian region, Thet co-founded Asian Geographic Society with a mission to advocate for marine environmental sustainability through photography.
In the following years a continuous stream of the world’s top underwater photographers were featured in the magazine. Thet’s commitment to mission was illustrated by 20% of AGM’s sales profits funding the company’s research and preservation projects in Asia In 2001 Thet’s company acquired Scuba Diver Australia magazine.
