Thailand: Anchalika Kijkanakorn, founder and managing director of Akaryn Hospitality Management Services (AHMS) has been voted Thailand's Quality Person of the Year 2013.

The award is organised by the Foundation of Science and Technology Council of Thailand (FSTT) to "recognise individuals who succeed personally and professionally whilst dedicating themselves to the benefit of Thai society and the country in various fields".

Kijkanakorn, who is also chairman of Small Luxury Hotesl of the World (SLH) said: "Although AHMS has a strong focus on international visitors, we have always been fully committed to the sustained growth of both the global reputation of Thailand as a haven for tourism and the careers and welfare of local Thai communities. It is with a sense of great personal and national pride therefore, that I accept this award."

AHMS employs almost 600 Thai staff, providing training and career progression programmes that allow the company to source talent from local areas. More than 60 per cent of managerial and supervisor positions at Aleenta Resorts are occupied by staff who have grown in-house at the resort, with similar figures to be replicated across all new AHMS resorts due to open over the next two years.
