Mr. Peter Komposch, General Manager, took on the charitable responsibility of sponsoring 66 athletes who
participated in this Southeast Asian fun run.
“We are honoured to be a part of this corporate social responsibility initiative to promote the importance of

through some fun family-based activities,” said Mr. Peter Komposch, General Manager of Dusit Thani
