At the forefront of ShopBack is Kawin Prachanukul, a young and ambitious marketing guru who is the co-founder and country head of ShopBack Thailand. He was raised in Bangkok and has a degree in marketing from Thammasat Business School. He's been in e-commerce since leaving university, joining the operations team at Lazada, and then moving to Uber in 2014. Through his expertise and experience, he's made the leap to country head of this revolutionary start-up and was thrilled to give Guru the round-up on ShopBack.
