Introducing Theerapat Supavita, who recently concluded his international assignment in Vietnam
Theerapat Supavita joined Huhtamaki in August 2010 as Key Account Manager in his native country Thailand. Early 2017 an opportunity rose to go on an international assignment to Vietnam as Sales & Marketing Director, which Theerapat decided to take on. Just recently, after a year abroad, Theerapat returned to Thailand.
On top of the MBA from Eastern Michigan University, USA, Theerapat has a strong background in plastic and packaging industries in Thailand. Prior to joining Huhtamaki, he has worked in various international companies dealing with many of the same key customers, which has proved to be a great asset to his team.
"On personal front, I am married with 2 children, a son and a daughter. My family could not join me in Vietnam as my children had to attend school so I travelled back to Thailand regularly during the assignment to spend time with my family", Theerapat recalls.
"I am grateful to Huhtamaki for giving me an opportunity to work on this international assignment and explore working in a foreign country with different language, culture and people. I must admit that it wasn’t always easy but I learned so much that the benefits outweigh the challenges", Theerapat concludes.
