Proudputh “Prou” Liptapanlop
Managing Director, Proud Real Estate
This Oxford graduate was born and raised in the world of politics – her father, Suwat, is a former deputy prime minister of Thailand – but Prou chose to follow her grandmother’s footsteps and entered the world of real estate and hospitality investment. As managing director of the fiveyear-old Proud Real Estate, she is in charge of her family’s Intercontinental Hua Hin hotel and shopping mall business in Hua Hin. In addition, her well-situated residential project, Park 24, has opened for pre-sale. She also launched the multi-billion-baht Vana Nava Hua Hin water park and Holiday Inn resort complex, and announced plans for two additional leisure projects in Hua Hin totalling 1.2 billion Baht.
