Lexicon Founder and Managing Director, David Norcross, won an award for Expat Entrepreneur of the Year at the 2019 King Power Thailand International Business Awards.
“It’s extremely gratifying to think about how far Lexicon has come. From operating out of my kitchen with Steve Callerame less than five years ago, we’ve quickly grown into a dynamic company of more than 30 talented storytellers working across four departments: video production, graphic design, Tech Lab, and content marketing,” Norcross said.
“Everyone at Lexicon brings a unique set of skills to the table, but what every member of the team has in common is a passion for storytelling. That’s what this award is all about. It’s a win for the team and it’s a win for storytelling.”
“The most exciting part of all is that we’re just getting started. To celebrate our fifth birthday, we’re moving into a 600sqm office in the heart of the CBD, which will include a studio to help us tell even better stories with our video production team. I am lucky to have such a talented team and I can’t wait to see what 2020 has in store for the Lexicon family. ”
Lexicon was also nominated for the Most Innovative Company Award, which was won by Senior Aerospace Thailand.
Lexicon client INSEE Ecocycle, which provides sustainable waste management and industrial services solutions, won the Outstanding Company award. Lexicon is currently building a new website for INSEE, and also works closely with them to create infographics, thought leadership articles, and social media content.
“It was great to see INSEE take home that award,” said Lexicon’s Senior Content Marketer Justin St-Denis. “They really are an outstanding company. They clean oil tanks with robots. They safely decontaminate and take apart offshore oil rigs. They mine plastic waste out of landfills and turn it into clean energy for their cement kilns. INSEE is doing some pretty amazing things. It’s a privilege to work with them and tell their story.”
The event was organized by the British Chamber of Commerce Thailand in collaboration with The Big Chili, The Federation of Thai Industries, Eastern Economic Corridor, Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau, and the Chamber of Commerce and Board of Trade Thailand. The awards were sponsored by King Power Thailand, NEOBÖMI, Boat Lagoon Yachting, King’s College International School Bangkok, Thai Airways, Evolution Wellness (Fitness First), the British Chamber of Commerce Thailand, and The Big Chili.
Master of ceremonies duties were performed by Australian author, Thai television personality, and entrepreneur Andrew Biggs. Biggs’s brand of dry humor, with subtle quips about the life of an expat in Thailand had attendees in a jovial mood.
Guests were all dressed in smart business attire and evening wear, but arguably the best dressed attendee of the event was Lexicon’s Senior Video Producer and resident Bruno Mars look-alike, Manit Monsur, who sported a shiny blue tuxedo with black trim.
“Hey, you’ve got to dress for success,” Monsur said. “Seriously though, this was a great event and I’m so happy that Lexicon was recognized. We have a great team that can tell stories in so many different ways and I’m honored to be a part of it.”
Other winners on the night included: Class Act Media (Outstanding Small Company), DRVR (Most Promising New Business), Rachadawan Kelar (Thai Entrepreneur), Pinyapa Somphong (Young Professional Award), the British Community in Thailand Foundation for the Needy (Social Impact), Peter N. Wainman and Daniele Cosentino (Expat Entrepreneurs).
