PTT Philippines names new CEO
May 09, 2019
PTT Philippines has named its Retail Marketing Director Thitiroj Rergsumran as its new President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), replacing Sukanya Seriyothin who has led the company since November 2014.
Rergsumran’s new appointment took effect last May 1, 2019 as Seriyothin ended her tour of duty in the Philippines to return to PTT Oil and Retail (PTTOR) head office in Bangkok, Thailand. PTTOR is the parent company of PTT Philippines.
Rergsumran who served as Marketing Director for PTT Philippines for four years has vowed to continue all the good legacy that Seriyothin left during her tenure as president and CEO.
“We will continue to strive further to sustain if not exceed all the efforts that my predecessors had started,” Rergsumran said, adding that the focus will remain to achieve PTT’s mission and vision in the Philippines.
“Our expansion will continue on both our oil and non-oil businesses and we are confident that we can achieve our growth because of the strong support from our head office in Thailand., especially now that Khun Sukanya (Seriyothin) has already joined our international marketing,” he averred.
Seriyothin has been assigned to PTTOR International Marketing being headed by former
PTT Philippines president and CEO Wisarn Chawalitanon.
Prior to his assignment to the Philippines in 2015, Rergsumran was the senior Area Manager of PTT Public Company Limited in Thailand. He also served as General Director of Vietnam LPG Company Limited from 2009 to 2014.
He has an MBA degree from the California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, California in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. In 2006, he also earned his Ph.D. in Development Management from the National institute of Development Administration in Thailand.
With Rergsumran’s new appointment, PTT Philippines in effect has two male presidents and CEOs – Mr. Rergsumran for PTT Philippines Corporation and Danny Alabado for PTT Philippines Trading Corporation (PTTTC).
Mr. Alabado was appointed to the position in November 2018 after serving as General Manager for seven years.
A Certified Public Accountant who aced the 1990 National CPA Licensure Exam with his 8th place finish, Alabado was the Financial Planning Manager at PTT Philippines Corporation/Subic Bay Distribution, Inc. for 11 years prior to his appointment as General Manager.
