In mid July the Thai-Swedish Chamber of Commerce (TSCC) announced to all members that our Executive Director, Mr Peter Bjork, has resigned with immediate effect, having been offered instead a new position as Executive Director of the European Association for Business and Commerce (EABC), which he had applied for. Peter Björk served TSCC for over four years.
“After four great years with Swecham it is now time for me to move on to new challenges. We have a very competent and experienced President, Board and staff so the transition will be smooth. It will also be good for the Chamber with a new Executive Director (ED) that can carry on the renewal work. I urge everyone to fully support the Interim organisation and later the new ED,” Peter Björk told the news website ScandAsia.
“This is a great promotion for Peter as well as a great challenge,” President Jan Eriksson of TSCC wrote to the Chamber members.
“Peter has done an outstanding job for TSCC putting in a very large amount of hours above his employment contract. He has handled his job with the highest integrity always promoting TSCC and Thai – Swedish business relations and being an exceptionally good representative for all that TSCC stands for”.
Following the director’s resignation Project Manager Jiraya Chanchon took over as acting Executive Director, until a new Executive Director has been officially appointed.
