AIMS Bangkok Appoints CEO and Head of Operations
Bangkok, 24 June 2021 – The AIMS Group (“AIMS”), Southeast Asia’s leading carrier-neutral data centre services provider, has announced the appointments of Lim Peng Keong as Chief Executive Officer and Wiwat Srijaratsin as Head of Operations to drive the business growth and expansion of AIMS Data Centre (Thailand) Limited (“AIMS Bangkok”), its operations in Thailand.
As part of AIMS’ ASEAN expansion plans, AIMS Bangkok bolsters its local presence in Thailand and is a key component of a network of interlinked data centres that AIMS’ is building across the region. AIMS Bangkok is also modeled after AIMS’ proven and successful business model of a carrier-neutral ecosystem where its customers can interconnect with various carriers, service providers and their partners within the network.
AIMS Bangkok is also able to leverage off the knowledge and expertise gained from AIMS’ experience in the market as well as the connectivity offered via the international submarine and terrestrial fibre network of its parent company, TIME dotCom (“TIME”).
In the short time that AIMS Bangkok has been operating, it has received certifications for both the ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management System as well as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), a testament of AIMS’ proven processes and security compliance. Compliance and certification according to the standards set by ISO/IEC 27001 means that effective security controls and policies are in place to ensure information security. Further to that, PCI-DSS certification holds organisations to the highest standards for the storage, processing, and transfer of cardholder information.
This means that even enterprises in industries such as banking and financial services can rest assured that the most stringent security measures and policies are in place to minimise risk and ensure business continuity.
“We extend our warmest welcome to both Lim and Wiwat. AIMS Bangkok is in capable hands and the AIMS Group looks forward to building on the presence that we have established in Thailand as we work on fortifying our business in ASEAN,” said Chiew Kok Hin, CEO of the AIMS Group.
