DTAC Norwegian executive in his new role

The co-chief executive officer of Total Access Communication Thailand (DTAC) Sigve Brekke is on the path to stardom as a guest in a new Thai flick “The Mine”, slated to be released next year.
     The film sees the Norwegian executive in the role of a mine owner in a Thai southern province. He was reportedly secretive about his new role: while filming the movie in the south provinces, he sent a message to some close staff that the location was very nice but never said what he was actually doing.
      After starring in DTAC television commercials two years ago, Sigve Brekke became a familiar face among Thai television viewers. He was also the only high-ranking executive in Thailand who performed a rap dance during a press party.
      Before joining Telenor (which holds 29.94 percent share in DTAC), Sigve Brekke has spent eleven successful years as a full-time politicians in Norway. He was almost six years ago posted to Singapore to set up Telenor’s first office there and pave the way for Telenor’s investment in Malaysia’s DiGi.com and later in DTAC.
      Brekke was moved to Thailand when Telenor shifted its focus from identifying investment opportunities to operating the companies.
      “The Mine” is directed by Jira Maligool, who marked his directorial debut two years ago with “Mekong Full Moon Party” (2002). He earlier made his name noticeable in the international film circuit with Asian box-office hits “The Iron Ladies” (2000) that he co-wrote.
