Meanwhile, Pham Quoc Thanh, deputy CEO, will become the new CEO instead of Dang.

Prior to that, MSB also made a big change with its personnel. In mid-January, Huynh Buu Quang resigned as CEO to become deputy chair of the board of directors. The post of CEO has been given to Nguyen Hoang Linh, who was retail banking director.

Most recently, ABBank on April 1 announced that Pham Duy Hieu, acting CEO, resigned from the post to work at the personal committee, focusing on training and the implementation of digital banking project.

The new CEO of ABBank is Le Hai, who on March 31, or just one day before that day, left the post of deputy CEO of Military Bank.

 


At Military Bank, Hai reportedly made a great contribution to promoting products for SMEs and individual clients. The decision by ABBank showed that ABBank is looking forward to the development of the retail banking sector.

In March alone, five commercial banks announced changes in high-ranking personnel, namely Eximbank, VietBank, BIDV, Techcombank and Sacombank.

Eximbank on March 5 appointed Nguyen Quang Thong to the post of deputy chair of the board of directors and La Quang Trung to the post of chief accountant.

VietBank on March 13 announced that Le Thanh Nhung resigned from the post of CEO after six years of staying on the post, and he has been replaced by Le Huy Dung, who was deputy CEO.

BIDV, one of the ‘big four’, caught the special attention from the public when making four appointments for the posts of deputy CEO and two appointments for the posts of members of the board of directors.

The four deputy CEOs include Phan Thanh Hai, Hoang Viet Hung, Nguyen Thi Quynh Giao and Tran Long, while the two members of the board of directors are Le Kim Hoa and Tran Xuan Hoang.

Some days ago, in a statement about the solutions to cope with the epidemic, the Sai Gon – Ha Noi Bank (SHB) the bank’s high-ranking executives will receive 50 percent of wages until the government declares the end of the epidemic.

Prior to that, HD Bank announced a 10-25 percent wage cut applied to workers with monthly pay of VND10 million or more.
