This includes transforming roles and duties at every level to move together in a new working style that will leverage the potential of technology to the fullest extent for maximum benefits to customers.
The mission to drive its long-term strategies, to transform working styles in every segment, and to drive a new corporate culture has primarily rested with the Chief Executive Officer. Under the new business direction, Arthid has proposed segregating the president’s position to help drive current business, while pushing tasks under the transformation mission to full achievement by 2020 as planned.

The new appointments take effect from February 5, 2019.
