Mutant Opens an Office in Thailand Led by Vorasit Turongsomboon

Mutant has expanded its presence in the region with its first office in Thailand, led by Vorasit Turongsomboon as Country Manager to scale operations locally.

Turongsomboon is tasked with growing Mutant’s presence across Thailand, as well as providing support for regional clients by leading, running and delivering strategic and results-driven campaigns across PR, content, social media and branding.

Turongsomboon was previously Managing Director at MSL Thailand and spent almost 10 years with Procter & Gamble Thailand. Turongsomboon brings more than 15 years of experience to Mutant. Most recently in his role at MSL Thailand, Turongsomboon was responsible for significant business wins such as Nestlé, PTTEP, Arcelik Hitachi, and Hong Kong Tourism Board, as well as leading the group through transitions and restructuring the firm’s strategic approach to PR. Prior to this, he was a senior brand manager at P&G for nine years, leading PR and communications for brands in Thailand, including SK-II, Olay, Pantene, Head & Shoulders, Downy, Gillette and Oral-B.


 

The addition of Mutant Thailand brings the agency’s regional headcount to 60, including Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia teams.

“Thailand is an incredibly exciting market with huge growth potential – and client demand made it an obvious choice for us to factor it into Mutant’s regional growth plans. The Thailand team has hit the ground running, and I am thrilled to have someone with the experience and profile of Vorasit to take the lead and showcase Mutant’s results-driven approach to clients across Thailand,” said Joseph Barratt, Mutant CEO.

“Thailand’s PR landscape is evolving very fast, and so it’s apt that Mutant stands for the ability to adapt and evolve. It takes a collective team of strategic PR experts with a deep understanding of local Thai media and the influencer landscape to achieve results with both speed and quality. With Mutant’s regional network of experts across ASEAN and the agility of being an independent agency, I am excited to bring everything Mutant has to offer to both clients and potential talent in Thailand,” add Turongsomboon.

“As we embark on building Mutant Thailand, I’m very happy to take the charge in translating both the results and the culture Mutant is known for to a local audience,” he added.


 

Mutant Thailand has also hired Chanidapha Chongpatiyutt (Cherry) as Senior Manager. Previously from Hill & Knowlton Strategies, Cherry has worked with a variety of clients across oil and energy, F&B, retail, tech, and entertainment and streaming services.

Other new hires include Ritthisak Wongpanngam (Bite) and Indhuwan Punyaratabandhu (Tarn) as Managers, and Pimpisa Haochatturat (Luka) as PR Specialist.
