PRESS RELEASE

 

“DUSIT THANI COLLEGE APPOINTED NEW RECTOR, FROUKE GERBENS, TO THE ORGANISATION”

 

Dusit Thani College (DTC), Thailand’s premier hospitality education institution, recently released the appointment of its new rector who will take over the helm of the college. Ms. Frouke Gerbens, Dutch native, is coming to her new post as a college rector with her 25 years of higher education management experience under her belt. Which to say the least will play a pivotal role in her efforts to spearhead DTC from strength to strength.

 

Frouke joined the Dusit Group two years ago to help launch Dusit Hospitality Management College in Manila, The Philippines, a pioneering hospitality education concept fully integrated with the new 125-room dusitD2 The Fort hotel.

 

Her career in higher education began 25 years ago as Associate Director MBA Program at Nyenrode University in the Netherlands. In 1999, Frouke moved to Switzerland to join the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL) where during almost 13 years she occupied several management positions, including Director of Administrative Affairs and Director of Student Affairs. In 2012 she founded ABG International, a Swiss-based education management solutions consultancy. ABG’s clients included the University of Geneva, the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, the World Economic Forum, and the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy of the National University of Singapore.

 

Frouke holds a Master in Business Administration (Nyenrode University, 1994) and a Bachelor in Hotel Administration (Hotelschool The Hague, 1989). She is currently pursuing her Doctorate in Business Administration in Higher Education Management at the University of Bath. Prior to working in higher education, Frouke worked in five-star hotels in Amsterdam, Cairo and the Caribbean.

 

“Combine my passion for education and hospitality with my decades-long experience, I am thrilled to build on the College’s strengths and Dusit’s founding mission to deliver gracious Thai hospitality to the world to advance Dusit Thani College and make it the most progressive and reputable hub for hospitality education in the region” Frouke said.
