The team carried out the research at national and ASEAN levels with the aim of encouraging high-ranking executives to seriously develop corporate brands, thus driving strong growth and business sustainability.

Dr. Ake Pattaratanakun adds that the corporate brand values have been calculated using the CBS Valuation formula which integrates marketing, finance, and accounting so that the corporate brand can be measured in monetary terms. The CBS Valuation has earned the recognition of the leading companies as a tool for setting organisational efficiency goals. Strong corporate brands translate into higher revenue, lower costs, higher-quality investments, and most importantly, better sustainability.

The valuation results and recognition of ASEAN and Thailand’s Top Corporate Brands awards are key to creating strength and sustainability among Thai and ASEAN businesses.
