Naphaporn “Lek” Bodiratnangkura
Managing Director, The Nai Lert Group
Naphaporn “Lek” Bodiratnangkura is the daughter of Chutipat and Sanhapit Bodiratnangkura and the maternal granddaughter of Thanpuying Lursakdi Sampatisiri, the founder of Nai Lert Group. After her education in New York and England, Lek joined the family business. Most recently, she helped orchestrate the 10.8 billion-baht sale of their Swissôtel Nai Lert Park Hotel to Bangkok Dusit Medical Services (BDMS), and she is a driving force – along with her mother – to transform the family’s 103-year-old teakwood house into a museum. This year, Lek introduced Nai Lert Butler, the first and only butler academy in Thailand, in order to raise the standard of hospitality in Thailand to the next level and deliver unparalleled levels of service.
