Mercer has announced the appointment of Juckchai Boonyawat in the role of CEO for Mercer Thailand.
According to a media release, he joined the consulting firm, and wholly owned subsidiary of Marsh and McLennan Companies, as of 10 June following the departure of former CEO of Mercer Thailand Dr Ake Ayawongs, who joined Mercer’s team in San Francisco in May.
Boonyawat comes with more than 20 years’ experience in the finance and consulting sectors, with his most recent role being Managing Director at Family Know-How (Money Channel), formerly a joint venture entity of the Stock Exchange of Thailand.
Prior to that, he led the in-house investment consulting team and managed distribution channels in his role as the Bangkok-based Chief Distribution Officer at Manulife Asset Management for five years. He was also the Regional Assistant Vice President and Head of Sales & Marketing for AIA’s Group Employee Benefits (EB) in Thailand.
Commenting on his new appointment, Boonyawat said: "I’m looking forward to leading Mercer’s team in Thailand and growing our capacity to help more clients achieve their health, wealth and career goals."
He also noted that while Mercer was recognised as a global leader, its solutions were tailored to the local market, leveraging deep expertise in the Asia region.
Mercer Asia CEO, Renée McGowan, said Boonyawat’s leadership skills and experience in health and wealth would drive further growth for Mercer Thailand.
She added: "With Juckchai leading Mercer in Thailand, we will grow our capacity to deliver on the needs of local businesses and their people. We will be their partners in enabling sustainable growth, creating healthier workforces, and helping their employees become future-ready."
