Chief Engagement Officer, Food Passion Company Ltd.
Food Passion’s chains are ubiquitous: Bar B Q Plaza, Joom Zap Hut, Charna, Space Q, and Red Sun —with over 165 outlets in Thailand and 25 outlets in the region. As the company’s Chief Engagement Officer, Chataya Supanpong is working especially hard to make Bar B Q Plaza a regional presence across Southeast Asia. With a prestigious MBA under her belt, she understands that supportive leadership is key, and that the well-being of her nearly 4,000 employees is paramount. In 2018 Food Passion was named ‘Best of the Best Employers’ in Thailand by Sasin Aon Hewitt, and this year Chataya herself was honoured to be one of 10 businesswomen awarded by the ASEAN Women Entrepreneurs Network (AWEN).
