Siegfried J. Pedde
President and Treasurer
Sieg is a businessman in London, Ontario Canada. He started his first businesses at age 17, and currently owns three Canadian companies. He attended the University of Western Ontario from 1967 - 1969, but dropped out because he found business more exciting and satisfying. He is looking forward to the challenge of bringing the Roca Milagro project to fruition. Sieg loves Panama and its people and chose the country to invest in because of its stability, climate and accessibility.
Sieg is married to Chrystyna and has one teenage son, Zachary. Zachary has decided that he wants to become a businessman like his father, and Sieg looks forward to bringing him to Panama whenever he can.
Sieg loves to read, when he can find the time, playing his guitars, photography, and horseback riding. He looks forward to riding the trails in and around the Roca Milagro development.
You can read Sieg's ramblings, and learn about his (mis)adventures, at his personal blog, The Atavist.
Temy Staff was born in Panama, in the Rovira Arriba area, but has been living in the United States for over thirty years. He will be selling his property in Virginia and moving back to Panama, where he will build his dream home on the Roca Milagro site. Mr. Staff was the former owner of the land on which Roca Milagro is being developed, and he is now a partner in the development. His skills as a businessman, honed during his years in Arlington, Virginia, will be invaluable as the development of our community progresses. His family ties and his Panamanian friendships help us navigate through the regulatory processes necessary to bring a project like this to life.
Mr. Staff is married, with two sons. He loves to tinker with antique cars. He will be able to indulge his passion for horseback riding at Roca Milagro, and in quiet moments, he will take pleasure in reading and philately.
