Female CEOs making their mark

Female executives are making their presence felt across Southeast Asia. With flexible ideas, customer-centered perspectives, attention to detail, risk management and other positive characteristics, they are breathing fresh air into industry and taking the lead.

     Moving beyond their Association of Southeast Asian Nations markets, they are going global, connecting through overseas partnerships and the international operations they are aggressively constructing. The budding Asean Economic Community, to start up by the end of 2015, could help ease regional flows of people, goods and services.

     At the same time there are increasing concerns about the slowing of emerging economies like Thailand and Malaysia, which have been driving regional market growth. Powerful women executives like those featured here may be instrumental in building up Asean for its next leap.
