Krung Thai Bank Public Co., Ltd.

Company Background

Krung Thai Bank is Thailand's second largest bank by assets. It is the only one of the country's top four banks owned by the government; the ministry of finance indirectly holds over 60% of its shares. The bank was established in 1966 through the merger of two-state-owned banks, the Kaset Bank and Monton Bank. It was the first state-owned enterprise to list on the Stock Exchange of Thailand, in 1989. In 1998, it merged with two other state-owned banks, the First Bangkok City Bank and Bangkok Bank of Commerce.

Chairman Areepong Bhoocha-oom was appointed in June 2014 to replace Voravidh Champeeratana, who took office during the previous Yingluck Shinawatra government but stepped down after the military coup in May. Areepong is a former permanent secretary at the ministry of finance but was demoted during the previous regime to the office of the public sector development commission. Since August, he has also been the acting chairman of the troubled, state-owned Thai Airways.
