Microsoft Vietnam appoints new country manager

Thursday, September 07, 2017, 12:16 GMT+7

Microsoft has officially announced Aung San Maung as the company’s new country manager in Vietnam.

Maung entered the roll on September 5 as a replacement for former manager Vu Minh Tri, according to Microsoft News.

Microsoft assured the public that Tri had successfully led Microsoft’s operations in Vietnam and will leave his five-year term with many achievements under his belt.

Maung started working for Microsoft Australia in January 2000, and was moved to Microsoft Vietnam as a head of the Enterprise Product Group (EPG) three years later.

During his term as the head of EPG, Aung successfully rebuilt the department and achieved outstanding results in just six short months.

For four years in a row, Maung’s department achieved results far beyond the company’s expectations.

Before working for Microsoft in Asia for the last 20 years, Aung spent 10 years as a head of department at IBM.

As a country manager, Maung will be responsible for managing business strategy, operations, and development initiatives in the Vietnamese market.

Maung studied computer science at a university in Canberra, Australia and graduated in 1983.

He started working for IBM in 1987 as a salesman before becoming a technical consultant, and eventually a procurement manager until he left the company in 1999.
