What experience and background do you bring to your role at the Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra Golf & Spa Resort?
I graduated from Assumption University with honors, majoring in Business English and minoring in Business French. I got a scholarship of full tuition fees through the four years as I attained the highest score in the entrance examination for southern Thailand. As I could also communicate in French, this helped me work for a French hotel chain like Accor.
I have now been working in the field of Marketing, Public
Relations and Communications with Accor Hotels for eight years and my responsibilities and experience from this support me in my current role of leading the development
of Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra’s dynamic Marketing and
