The JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa has appointed Sean Panton to the newly created role of Director of Corporate Social Responsibility.

 Reporting directly to the general manager, Sean is responsible for the development of internal and external community and environmental programs and initiatives, which are designed to complement the resort's commitment to the Marriott International Sustainability plan of best global practices.

A British national born in Malawi and having travelled extensively in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Caribbean and America before starting a career in hospitality, Sean has held spa, health and wellbeing and teambuilding positions at 5-star resorts in Macau, Mallorca and Thailand, including previous roles at JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa.

 Most recently he was CEO/Founder of SEEK Phuket, an outreach CSR project for Thanyapura which worked with the public and private sector to develop a Phuket Sustainability Plan.

CSR @ JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa

JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa's existing CSR efforts include a heavy involvement with the Mai Khao Marine Turtle Foundation, which works to help the endangered leatherback turtles who nest on beautiful Mai Khao Beach where the resort is located. This has included annual releases back into nature of rehabilitated turtles and fundraising.

Now, with the foundation marking its 11th anniversary, a new turtle educational centre is being built onsite at JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa. The facility will encourage environmental educational to resort guests, Marriott associates and the local community in marine stewardship while increasing awareness of Phuket's endangered species. The centre will also be home to four injured adult turtles and feature a nursery area for baby turtles. 

This is a welcome return for me to JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa and one which I'm very excited about said Sean. Teambuilding and CSR are my passions and myself and the resort staff are eagerly looking forward to the increased benefits for the good of the environment and local community.
