Mr Phattanan was nominated by outgoing president Mr Boon, which he said gave him great confidence in taking up the presidency after serving as the association’s General Secretary.


“I am proud to present Khun Phattanan. Members who have been with the association since it was founded in 2009, as well as myself while serving as President over the past two years, have seen that Khun Phattanan is very capable and has a wide network.

“It is is time for him to step forward in order to fully utilize his connections and knowledge in his role as President of the Phuket Real Estate Association,” Mr Boon said.

Mr Boon’s sentiment was echoed at the meeting, with the executive committee and fellow members expressing their gratitude and support for Mr Phattanan is his role as president.

"Thank you to Khun Boon Yongsakul, the former president of the association, and all executive committee members, including all former presidents who laid the foundation for our association as well, for allowing me to continue my work with confidence,” Mr Phattanan said.

“I and the new executive committee team will work with utter determination for the benefit of the association and fellow members. To create the maximum benefit will require an an alliance working with government and other associations, best of all,” he added.

“In the coming two years I intend to bring new property developers to develop Phuket province. At the same time, I will push for support for new and existing entrepreneurs to create projects of quality through new knowledge and new methods, to promote the property business for Phuket members and allow entrepreneurs in Phuket to be equivalent to entrepreneurs at the national level,” Mr Phattanan said.
