Absolute Hotel Services Introduces Technical Service Team

September 10, 2021 -

BANGKOK, Thailand (September 2021) – The CEO of Absolute Hotel Services (AHS), Mr. Jonathan Wigley, is delighted to announce the introduction of the new roles within its Technical Service Team.

Absolute Hotel Services, one of the fastest-growing hotel management companies in Asia, will be introducing new roles within its Technical Service Team which have oversight of the development and design of all portfolio properties prior to their opening. The team will be responsible for developmental consulting during the design and build stages of projects, operating equipment lists, master planning guidance on fire prevention and safety as well as recommendations on all necessary IT and operating equipment to ensure and maximize operational performance in alignment with company standards, and initiate service processes and procedures which will exceed customer satisfaction expectations in all aspects.

To further enhance the team, Chakrit has been promoted to Deputy Vice President – Technical Services. This promotion has deservedly come about after many years of working with the AHS Group in his capacity of Director of Technical Services, in which time he has demonstrated his professionalism through leadership and team consultancy coupled with outstanding creativity. 

Chakrit first joined AHS in May 2013 focusing on properties in Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and India. Offering consultation on preliminary design concepts as well as developing designs and supported renovation programs, rebranding projects and constructions through the openings of Eastin Grand Hotels, Eastin Hotels & Residences, U Hotels & Resorts, Vienna House Asia and Travelodge.   

Prior to joining AHS, Chakrit was Division Manager at Magnolia Quality Development Co.,Ltd. (MQDC) and was Project Manager at TCC Capital Land Ltd. Chakrit graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture from Chulalongkorn University and also holds a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from NIDA.

Along with Chakrit’s promotion, Ms. Benchaphorn Sommai (Aom) was promoted as Senior Director of Technical Services.

Benchaphorn is an Absolute Hotel Services veteran with a strong background in interior design and design management. Prior to joining AHS, she was a Design & Technical Service Executive at GOCO Hospitality where she was responsible for space planning and coordinating and reviewed interior and technical drawings for luxury wellness hotels and spa projects in Indonesia, China, UAE and Thailand.

Aom first joined AHS in September 2015 as the Technical Service & Pre-Opening Manager. In 2019 she was promoted to Assistant Director of Technical Services & Pre-Opening due to her dedication and proficiency shown in her previous role.   

Aom said, “Someone said great companies don’t hire skilled people and motivate them, they hire already motivated people and inspire them. That’s what AHS does. AHS not only motivates but inspires us all to grow, and to be better, and we translate the attitudes to our products, our services, and everything we do. That’s what will make us grow stronger and better than ever.”

“Our services portfolio has been expanded to cover hotels, resorts, serviced residences, senior living, golf, leisure, interior design and consulting. I trust my team will make hotels and resorts brands outstanding with design and quality to exceed expected levels. Although the company’s expansion has been incredibly fast, I would expect to double our rooms portfolio in the next 5 years through all brands to approximately 55,000 rooms in our portfolio.  However, the customer’s satisfaction is always key to the business,” stated Jonathan.
