Kanchana Soonthornsittipong, Head of HR, Thailand

I joined PZ Cussons in 2005 as a key member of the team that established PZ Cussons'  new Soap factory in Thailand. 
From my initial role as Factory HR Manager, I progressed to become Head of HR for the Supply Chain and Commercial business units in Thailand and have now expanded my role to include HR Business Partnering for Supply Chain Asia.

I enjoy the many and varied challenges that working for PZ Cussons has brought.  In 2008 I initiated the CANDO Friday Talk in Thailand as a way of helping to gain ownership and understanding of the "English" CANDO phrases amongst Thai speaking employees.  This initiative is still going strong in Thailand and has since been adopted in Indonesia also.  CANDO is such as important part of life at PZ Cussons so helping to embed it was extremely rewarding.

Working with local, regional, global and cross functional teams was a particular attraction for me in being able to share knowledge with wide network of professionals as well as coach others.  I continue to learn and grow with the business, having the freedom to really make an impact within my areas of influence - I can make things happen as well as have fun in the process!
