Sothida Ann: the very model of success

In her position as associate director of CBRE Cambodia, Sothida Ann is an integral part of the property firm’s team.

Prior to joining CBRE Cambodia she served as a senior accountant with MSE KPM.

“In term of being a very busy woman with my work, I have had to learn to balance my time to allow me to continue my studies while also continuing to provide for my family and look after my lovely children,” Ann said. She added that doing that this has been difficult – especially while studying for accreditation to the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants – but that she has learned to master many tasks.

Ann has over four years of experience in the property market, most notably in property acquisitions and disposals, consultancy and valuations of real estate across all sectors. She has specific experience in terms of property management financing, accounting and budgeting for a number of different property types, having previously undertaken the role as head of finance for CBRE Cambodia.

Having completed projects and undertaken work for local, regional, national and international companies requiring real estate services, Ann intends to capitalise on Cambodia’s frontier market by expanding her business and the services it offers. “We cater to each individual client’s needs looking ahead into the future.”

At her office, Ann anticipates expanding her team from 10 Khmer staff members and four expatriates to in excess of 20 staff in total by the end of 2014. As the experience of Ann and her team at CBRE Cambodia continues to grow, she intends to continue to work with all clients to assist them in achieving their real estate goals.
