I am looking forward to continuing the journey of my predecessors, David Doran and Angus Mitchell both of whom I have been fortunate to work closely with during many years. Their vision and professional standards will continue guiding our team’s efforts. We have enjoyed many successes; now we are eager to do more. It is a critical time for business and investment in Thailand: the country is entering into a new era, we want to evolve with it. Making DFDL an always better place to work, empowering our team and always creating more added value to our clients will be our ambitions. “
