Dusit International has announced Suphajee Suthumpun as its new group CEO.
Suthumpun represents the third group CEO in the company’s 67-year history and the first to assume this position from outside of the founding family.
Prior to her new position, Suthumpun was the CEO of Thaicom. She succeeds Chanin Donavanik, who is now the vice chairman and chairman of the executive committee.
In her newly assumed position, Suthumpun will build on the momentum created by Donavanik whilst further strengthening the foundations for the company’s continued growth. With great vision for Dusit International, she will hone in on human capital development, technological advancement and strategic management of the company.
As well as developing the brand’s portfolio of international hotels and resorts, Suthumpun will also support the growth of Dusit’s additional business units, namely in the property development and hospitality education sectors.
Suthumpun enthused: “It is an exciting time to join Dusit International, and I am honoured to be entrusted with the leadership of such a significant organisation in Thailand’s tourism history. I am confident that with the support of the team, we can continue to build on the company’s founding legacy of bringing gracious Thai hospitality to the world.”
