Tran’s core expertise lies in assurance, International Financial Reporting Standards and Vietnamese Accounting Standards. Under his leadership, the assurance practice has grown significantly and built up a portfolio of audit clients, including many local companies and multinational corporations.
"We are pleased to announce Tran’s appointment and are confident that under his leadership, the firm will continue to grow and deliver on our client and people's expectations. It has been a fulfilling experience leading the firm since 2011, growing our multidisciplinary practice, developing new capabilities and most importantly, driving efforts to make PwC a better place to work for our people. I now look forward to handing the reins over to Tran who I know will accelerate the great momentum we have built," said Dinh Thi Quynh Van, the outgoing general director.
Van will continue as markets leader and take on the role as chairman for PwC Vietnam. She will drive market strategy in a number of strategically important areas, including environmental, social, and governance, digital transformation, and value creation capabilities.
Tran said, “I would like to thank Quynh Van for her successful leadership of PwC Vietnam. I'm looking forward to working with her to continue our journey towards building trust and delivering sustained outcomes for both our clients and people.”
Tran is a certified practising accountant (Australia) and member of Vietnam Association of Certified Public Accountants. He holds a doctoral degree in business administration from EU Business School, and an MBA degree from Henley Business School (UK).
