Heather Suksem, Chief Executive Officer, South, Southeast Asia & Middle East, OCS ROH Limited receives an OBE for services to British interests, the community and charitable interests in Thailand. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) recently announced 86 awards for Britons in recognition of their exceptional service to Britain overseas. The Diplomatic Service and Overseas New Year 2015 Honours List recognises extraordinary people in a range of fields.
On learning of her award Heather Suksem said, “I was overwhelmed to hear of the award and am very proud to be honoured in this way. Supporting the society in which we work, especially protecting and supporting children, is an integral part of the OCS and PCS culture, which resulted in the formation of our PCS Foundation, by our late Chairman, Mr Liam Ayudhkij”.
Sir Simon Fraser, Head of the Diplomatic Service, said: “I am delighted to see so many people recognised for their outstanding work in promoting our country overseas in the New Year 2015 Honours list. These are people who make a real difference to peoples’ lives at home and overseas and their awards are well deserved”.

Her work within the wider society involves campaigning against the exploitation of children and providing work on reaching employment age for those affected.
