The Sukosol’s Named Family of the Year

Siam Hotels & Resorts is proud to announce that it’s owning family, the Sukosols, was presented with the Family of the Year Award at the Nine Entertain Awards 2012 on Wednesday, March 14.

The Sukosol family was selected as the recipient of the award because their matriarch, Mrs Kamala Sukosol, has successfully installed in all family members a strong commitment to philanthropy. In addition, the Sukosol family was chosen as most exemplifying the spirit of the award by way of their public acts of charity and artistic/business achievements. And lastly, all family members were deemed to be upstanding citizens who represent good role models for today’s Thai youth.

“I think it’s a great honour for my mother, Kamala, and our family as a whole to be given this award, we are all very humbled and proud to receive it,” says Marisa Sukosol Nunbhakdi, eldest daughter of the family and executive vice president of Siam Hotels & Resorts. Sentiments echoed by her younger sister, Daranee Sukosol Clapp, vice president of finance, Siam Hotels & Resorts: “Our mother has installed in us from a young age that we should utilise all our skills, opportunities and means to their fullest and give back to society whenever possible. This can be evidenced in our annual Red Cross charity concert and more recently with our entire family becoming ambassadors for the Chulalongkorn Craniofacial Centre and the Ramathibodi Foundation’s Parent–to–Child Liver Transplant campaign.”
