I was a Senior Consultant at one of the leading recruitment companies for two and a half years, specialising in business to business (B2B) sales and marketing market with direct experience in B2B Sales from SCG (Siam Cement Group) and Samsung Electronics.
Why did you join PageGroup and what is your current role?
The key priorities that I look for in a company are being a global company, being professional and valuing people. Michael Page has all of these criteria. The most important thing is Michael Page can provide a fast growing opportunity for my next step of management level where I can use my experience and skills to drive the business from the start and grow together with the company. I am currently an Associate Manager in the Sales and Marketing discipline.
How has your past experience helped you in your current role?
With a strong passion in this job and about seven to eight years’ experience in B2B sales plus approximately four years’ experience in recruitment companies focusing on B2B/Industrial gives me the platform to provide professional advice to both clients and candidates. My experience and skills help me understand their requirements as well as the market situation that will be valuable to them.

Since joining PageGroup in March 2017, I have been leading the sales and marketing/industrial team in growing the business. For my team achievement, B2B sales and marketing team achieved the company’s revenue target in quarter 2 (my first full quarter in the business) which one of my team members made three successful placements in one month while another colleague who recently joined already made their first placement in the business. For my individual achievement, I exceeded the revenue target in my first full quarter, I made my first placement in the business within only approximately two weeks after starting in my role. I am also the first One Million Dollar Member in June for Michael Page Thailand.
