The Board of Directors of the Hua Hin Business Network (HHBN) has elected a new President, Ms. Leigh Higgins, founder of Feast Thailand.
Leigh has taken over from Pisa Cheng, the owner of Homeless Furniture, after Pisa announced she will be relocating to Malaysia. Leigh was unanimously elected due to her experience in promotions and her great leadership qualities.
The Board thanked Pisa for her contribution over the past 2 years and wished both Pisa and her husband Max all the very best for the future.
Leigh said “I am looking forward to the challenges of my new position and will be working closely with the Board and the HHBN Members to ensure we continue to grow and add networking value to our current members. We will look to new strategies in growing our membership base. Communication to our members will be a focus and we have already started some changes to the look of the HHBN Facebook page plus we will be reviewing our website layout.”
The HHBN Board also congratulated Michael Kehnsherper who was elected as the new Secretary and Brigitte Persson who will take on the additional responsibility of managing the HHBN membership program. Other Board positions remain unchanged.
