Dear Members and Friends of BeLuThai,
  
With regrets, I announce the resignation of Mr. Philip Coates as Executive Director of our Chamber. Philip has decided to relocate back to Belgium for the foreseeable future.
 
On behalf of the Board of Directors I hereby want to thank Philip for his many years of tireless dedication to raise the profile of our beloved Chamber, including the organization of some amazing events along the way. This greatly contributed to an enhanced reputation of our member companies to the Thai business community.
 
We all wish Philip great success in his professional undertakings in his home country.
 
Hereby I do invite anyone feeling compelled to take on the role of Executive Director of BeLuThai to come forward and contact us directly or via one of our Board Members. A detailed job description is available   here   and an interview can be arranged.
  
The Covid situation still dictates what is possible in our professional and social lives and the timing for a “back to normal” situation is still unclear. The timetable of our planned events has therefore been adjusted and the Board has deemed it necessary to postpone some of the planned events until next year.
  
Best regards, 

Siriporn Wuthilaohaphan 
President of BeLuThai
