Tirawan Pangsrivongse Taechaubol

Development manager at Kasemkij, one of Thailand’s leading property development and management companies, Tirawan is adamant about running the family business in a manner that supports the local community. She’s what one might call a philanthropic businesswoman. Together with her family, she is very much involved in the Thai Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the SOS Foundation, constantly striving to make small changes in the world. Of course seeing her projects come to life, such as the recently opened Cape Kudu hotel on Yaonoi Island, gives her a sense of accomplishment but what makes her feel truly proud is getting a ‘well done’ from her father.

Definition of success: The satisfaction of knowing that you have done your best each day and that you are not wasting your life but living it with purpose.
