Visa, the world’s leader in digital payments, has recently announced the appointment of Ms. Dang Tuyet Dung to the role of Vietnam & Laos Country Manager.

Ms. Dung brings more than 20 years of experience in corporate banking and retail banking to the role, having held senior executive positions in both multinational and large Vietnamese banks.

She joins Visa from Maritime Bank, where she had been Deputy CEO and CEO of the Retail Banking Business since December 2014. In this role she was responsible for managing both head office business lines and the bank’s network of 196 retail branches and 1,400 staff. She also served on the bank’s executive committee.

“I am delighted to be joining Visa and leading our operations across Vietnam and Laos,” Ms. Dung said. “I am looking forward to working with our talented team to deepen partnerships with our clients across the region. By working together to grow the adoption of electronic payments, I know we’re going to be able to make a significant difference to the lives of consumers, businesses, and the broader economy.”

“We’re excited to have Ms. Dung join our team,” said Mr. Stephen Karpin, Visa’s Group Country Manager, Regional Southeast Asia. “She brings deep and diverse leadership experience in multinational and local financial services firms, a strong network, and a commitment to fostering high performing teams. I’m very confident she will strengthen our client focus and continued drive to expand access to electronic payments across the region.”

Before Maritime Bank, Ms. Dung spent more than five years at Techcombank, firstly as the Head of Retail Banking and then Head of Wholesale Banking. She also had a 15-year career at Citibank in Vietnam, serving in a variety of roles. Over this time, her responsibilities included Country Head of cash and trade product and implementation, global transaction services, risk, and operations.

Ms. Dung replaces Mr. Sean Preston, who has relocated to London to take on a new role in Visa Europe.
