Dung brings to Visa more than 20 years of experience in corporate banking and retail banking to the role, having held senior executive positions in both multinational and large Vietnamese banks.

She joins Visa from Maritime Bank where she has been deputy CEO and CEO of Retail Banking Business since December 2014. In this role she was responsible for managing both head office business lines and the bank’s network of 196 retail branches and 1,400 staff. She also served on Maritime Bank’s executive committee.

Dang Tuyet Dung said: “I am delighted to be joining Visa and leading our operations across Vietnam and Laos. I am looking forward to working with our talented team to deepen partnerships with our clients across the region. By working together to grow the adoption of electronic payments, I know we are going to be able to make a significant difference to the lives of consumers, businesses, and the broader economy.”

Stephen Karpin, Visa’s group country manager, Regional Southeast Asia, said: “We are excited to have Dung join our team. She brings deep and diverse leadership experience in multinational and local financial services firms, a strong network, and a commitment to fostering high performing teams. I am very confident she will strengthen our client focus and continued drive to expand access to electronic payments across the region.”

Before Maritime Bank, Dung spent more than five years at Techcombank, firstly as head of Retail Banking and then head of Wholesale Banking. She also had a 15-year career at Citibank in Vietnam, serving in a variety of roles. Over this time, her responsibilities included country head of cash and trade product and implementation, global transaction services, risk, and operations.

Dung replaces former country manager Sean Preston who has relocated to London to take on a new role in Visa Europe.
