Google Appoints New Leader For Thailand Operations

Google Southeast Asia announced the appointment of Ariya Banomyong to the position of Country Manager, Thailand, following an extensive search for the right individual to lead the Thailand operations.

Google was built around the idea that work should be challenging, and the challenge should be fun. When approaching the task of finding the newest leader for the Thailand operation, the ideal candidate needed a unique combination of professional excellence and a truly Googley personal style. With 14 years of combined experience in telecommunications, software, management and marketing, in addition to speaking four languages and holding two Master's degrees in Mathematics & IT from the University of Marne-La-Vallée, France, and in Management from the London School of Economics, United Kingdom, Khun Ariya's background reflects Google's culture of valuing passionate people who are willing to approach problems with creativity and can be serious without a suit. Julian Persaud, Managing Director of Google Southeast Asia, explained that this appointment had been eagerly anticipated saying, "Khun Ariya joins us at an exciting time for our business in Thailand with the recent launch of the Thai Business, Go Online program and our Google Chrome TV advertising campaign, The Web Is What You Make It, and I am extremely pleased to welcome someone of his calibre to our team." Ariya joins Google most recently from TRUE Corporation Plc., where he was Chief Commercial Officer of Convergence, and will now take responsibility for Google's sales and business development operations in Thailand. Ariya added, "I have always admired Google for its innovations and creativity and the way it has changed our lives. Google Thailand will bring the international experience of Google, while enabling us to better serve our Thai users, advertisers and partners with a local presence and flavor."
