Biography

As the owner and chief executive of retail company Siam Piwat, Chutrakul leads the management and operations of Bangkok’s best-known and most prestigious commercial landmarks. Under her leadership, Siam Piwat has focused on inventive and original ventures that have earned the company international recognition and regional acclaim. Since her chief executive appointment in 2009, Siam Piwat has grown rapidly, establishing more than 20 subsidiary companies across retail development, facility management and marketing communications.

Chutrakul graduated from Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok in 1982 with a degree in banking and finance. After working abroad for a few years, she returned to Thailand and joined the family business in 1986, initially working in accounting, before moving over to sales and promotion. Despite being the youngest of three children, she was groomed to take over the company, and took the helm upon her father’s death in 2009.

Chutrakul is the visionary and driving force behind Iconsiam, the impressive mega complex project on the River of Kings that will include 5.5 million square feet of retail space alongside residential apartments, a museum and theatre, conference facilities, and docks for private yachts and river cruises. At $1.57 billion, it is reportedly the largest privately funded project in Thai history.

Other retail destinations in the Siam Piwat portfolio include Siam Center, Siam Discovery Center, Paradise Park and Siam Paragon. The latter houses the likes of Dior, Hermes, Loewe, Chanel, Cartier, Burberry, Celine and Balenciaga.

Chutrakul was named Forbes Asia Power Businesswoman in 2014 and 2015. She is married to Apichart Chutrakul, founder and chief executive of real estate company Sansiri and has one daughter.
