Park brings an extensive portfolio of management expertise to the CEO position in Vietnam. His plan is to leverage this experience to build on Doosan’s Vina’s successes in infrastructure development for the power, water, and port logistics sectors in Vietnam and around the world.

Since assuming his new position on December 19, 2017, he has been working hard to enlist the support of his team of over 2,000 Vietnamese professionals and 40 Korean engineers so that they can seamlessly communicate and work as a cohesive force in the heavy industry.

In a “Meet the CEO” event with over 200 management staff, Park outlined his strategies and said, “I feel our priorities need to be strategic, basic, and core to our business, so to achieve our goals we will focus on the three areas of safety, quality, and communications. These will be the cornerstone and our victory depends on them, so we will be vigilant in executing initiatives that will provide accountability and structure so that we can be certain of realising our objectives!”

At a meeting with Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Park was encouraged to continue and expand the good work Doosan has done in the country.

He assured the PM that Doosan will always look for opportunities to support Vietnam’s growth and development and be a company that will continue its extensive CSR programmes in Vietnam.

Since opening in 2009, Doosan Vina and domestic and international partners has completed or is constructing four power plants in Vietnam.

When commissioned, these four power plants will add a total of nearly 5GW of power to the national grid, making them critical to national development. The company has so far invested nearly $6.5 million in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) projects to advance education, healthcare, and housing.
