Minor International Public Company Limited (“MINT”) was named one of the 2012 Southeast Asia Challengers by the Boston Consulting Group, a global management consulting firm and the world’s leading advisor on business strategy.
With its ambitious aspiration of international expansion, MINT has successfully established its strong presence overseas, from the acquisition of Australian’s leading hospitality operator to the openings of fast-growing restaurants in Southeast Asia.
Mr. Vincent Chin, Senior Partner and Managing Director (Head of Southeast Asia) of the Boston Consulting Group, commented, “The Boston Consulting Group initially looked at approximately 500 outstanding companies in Southeast Asia. Fifty companies were then selected based on the thorough analysis of their market positions in the region, the abilities to outgrow their peers and the proven record/strong potential to expand abroad. We are pleased to present the award to Minor International as Thailand’s rising star in consumer goods and hospitality segments.”
Mr. William Heinecke, Group CEO of MINT, said, “MINT has become one of the largest hotel and food operators in the region, from luxurious camps and lodges in Africa to top-five chains of hotels and restaurants in Australia. Despite global and domestic challenges, the Company continues to deliver robust growths, generate good returns to all stakeholders, while gaining strong recognition in the regional market. This is the result of our successful strategies that we have pursued over the past several years and the efforts of our management and employees in founding solid fundamentals that enable the Company to achieve such strong performances both at home and abroad. ”
