Welcoming two senior business leaders, VPBank chairman Ngo Chi Dung said: “VPBank is on its way to become a world-class bank to serve the needs of the Vietnamese market. The Board of Directors recognises that in order to achieve such as ambitious vision, there is a need to combine top international talent with native human resources in an effective organisational structure.”

Nanavati added: “VPBank has built a unique positioning and platform to take advantage of the many opportunities that present themselves in the market. The focus going forward will be on capitalising on growth opportunities built on a foundation of disciplined customer segmentation, strong credit quality, differentiated value propositions for both customers and employees, and prudent cost management.”

Thao shared: “As a transformation leader of over the past five years, I strongly believe that VPBank has a solid foundation and advantages to become “Home of Talents” from all over the world. We respect Diversity and Inclusion, as well as embrace individual differences. Being a local-international bank will surely differentiate us from other banks in the market."
