Mr. Ho Thanh Tung has been appointed Deputy General Director and Chief Strategic Officer of the CMC Corporation, taking on the crucial responsibility of developing its “Go Global” strategy.

He was previously General Director of Indochina at Oracle Vietnam.

After graduating in Russia, Mr. Tung was charge of IT and business at Johnson & Johnson in the north of Vietnam, and then worked at Peregrine Capital Vietnam. In 1995, he began working at Oracle in the position of solutions expert, then became leader of IT support and governmental business, before becoming a Director of Business and Technical Support Services.

“As part of the ‘Go Global’ strategy, CMC invited Mr. Tung to become Deputy General Director and Chief Strategic Officer and Mr. Kumeda Masakuni to be General Director of CMC Japan,” Mr. Nguyen Trung Chinh, Chairman of the CMC Corporation, said. This is within its human resources strategy, which is based on three core values: Innovation, Professionalism, and Team Spirit, he added.

In 2018, CMC is expected to have over 2,500 staff, Mr. Chinh went on. “Enthusiasm and belief is what CMC has, and that is a priceless asset,” he said.
