Interview with Masthawin Charnvirakul

After earning an MBA at the University of Southern California, Masthawin was hired by The Dow Chemical Company. There he met his first and most influential mentor, who put Masthawin’s personal career on the fast-track. He learned “very drastically and directly” at his mentor’s side, so that, after Dow, he joined one of his family’s companies, STP&I, and was quickly appointed to pilot it through its darkest time. Masthawin’s leadership emphasized changes that have brought the company to the financial success it is experiencing today.
