vietnamnet.vn quoted Facebook Vietnam's representative as saying that Khoi will replace Trang.
According to LinkedIn, Khoi Le graduated from the University College Dublin majoring in marketing and business strategy. Previous to working at the world-leading social network, Khoi worked at PwC, Visa, and Microsoft.
Khoi has worked at Facebook’s Singaporean branch for nearly two years with the initial position of head of Client Relationship.
In the afternoon of December 5, 2018, Trang posted a Facebook status about her decision to leave the social network after nine months in position, saying,“I’ll be leaving Facebook at the end of the year for family reasons. It has been a wonderful journey for me, learning, building, and leading the Facebook business in Vietnam. I truly believe in the mission of the company – which is about giving people the power to build a community and to bring the world closer together. Facebook has brought so many businesses and communities so much closer together and I cannot wait to see many other businesses grow and thrive on the platform.”

Trang (or Christy Le) was born in a family of business tradition. Her father, Le Van Tri, is former deputy CEO of leading rubber manufacturer Casumina, while her brother, Le Tri Thong, is now vice chairman of Phu Nhuan Jewelry JSC (PNJ).
After winning a scholarship to study at Oxford University in the UK, she went on to study at the well-known Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the US.
Trang left McKinsey after working for one year and 10 months to help her husband establish a startup specialising in keeping track of human health and physical activities called Misfit Wearables, which then received investment from former CEO of Apple and Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-shing.
After Misfit was acquired by Fossil Group for $260 million in 2015, Trang worked as CEO of Fossil Vietnam until earlier this March.
