Vorasit Issara

Having grown up with construction sites as his playground, the eldest son of Charn Issara Development’s Songkran and Srivara Issara possesses an affinity for developing beauty. Vorasit’s Sri Panwa resort is one of Phuket’s most popular luxury getaways. He has also recently unveiled his new babies, the Baba Beach Club residential projects in Phuket and Hua Hin. With expansion plans for China and two IPOs in the works, it has been a busy couple of years for Vorasit and his team. Known for his warm democratic approach to management, he makes it a point to get to know all his employees and never makes a decision without involving his staff. It is no wonder the Thai Ministry of Labour has commended Sri Panwa as being The Happiest Place to Work in Thailand—Vorasit’s proudest accolade among many others including the likes of Conde Nast Traveler.

Definition of Success: When everyone wins.
