He was Thailand Country Manager for Emerson, a manufacturer of industrial products, for seven years before joining the luxury yachting industry in 2015 with Azimut Yachts Thailand, where he was Operations Director.

“Thailand is Asia’s maritime capital. The combination of its location and tropical climate makes the country ideal for pleasure yachting,” Chanyo said. “Clients are ready to pay for a luxury yacht, but need a trusted company to take care of their luxury assets.”
