My path

Joining Cargill Vietnam Limited in July 2016 is one of the greatest milestones in my career path. This chapter can be called “my Pursuit of Success”. My first position at Cargill was Production Supervisor at Cargill Animal Nutrition plant in Can Tho, until end of March 2018. I was then promoted to be Plant Manager of CQN Dong Thap, one of the best plants of CQN in South Asia. In June 2019, I was appointed Regional Operation Manager for CQN Thailand – Vietnam.

Before joining Cargill, I worked for Holcim Vietnam Limited for 8 years, from October 2008 to June 2016 and took various roles across their manufacturing domain. I called this chapter my 2nd university degree in my life.

I also had 9 months with LILAMA 18 Joint Stock Company from December 2007 to September 2008 as Project Supervisor, working at Omon Thermal Power Plant 1. This was a great start for my career until now.
