More local banks have young leaders

Ms. Tran Thi Thu Hang, CEO of Sunshine Group, has become the youngest leader in Vietnam’s banking industry after being appointed chairwoman of KienLongBank.

In recent years, many businesspeople who were born in the 1980s and even 1990s have joined the management boards of local banks.

Hang, born in 1985, was appointed chairperson of KienLongBank to replace Mr. Le Hong Phuong at the bank’s recent meeting of the Board of Directors for the 2018-2022 term. Hang is the youngest female banking president.

Hang holds a master's degree in banking and finance from National Economics University and is currently the CEO of Sunshine Group and Chairwoman of SIPT Investment Joint Stock Company.

Earlier, Hang used to be LienVietPostBank's Head of Large Corporate Customer Department, and Director of Corporate Relations at Maritime Bank (MSB).
