Vietnamese woman listed in top Asian CEOs   2012-05-15 - VietNamNet

Mai Kieu Lien, CEO and chairwoman of Vinamilk, Vietnam’s largest dairy producer, has been listed as one of the top Asian CEOs by the Hong Kong-based Corporate Governance Asia Journal.

The magazine released the list on May 13, naming Lien, 58, the only Vietnamese representative on the list, next to a stream of leaders of China Telecom, HTC, San Miguel, LG, etc.,.

Other Asian CEOs in the list include those from China, the Philippines, Taiwan, Indonesia, India and South Korea, who all were appreciated for leading their enterprises through hardships and the recent global economic recession.

The awards ceremony is scheduled to take place on June 20 in Hong Kong.

In March, Lien was also named among the 50 most powerful businesswomen in Asia, by Forbes.

Forbes chose Ms. Lien for “having built the company not only into one of Vietnam's most profitable brands, but also a respected name across Asia.”

The Labor Publishing House recently published “Mai Kieu Lien, influential Asian Businesswoman” to portray Lien and her contribution to the development of Vinamilk in the last 20 years.

In 2010, Vinamilk received the Forbes Asia 2010 Best Enterprise Award among Top 200 best enterprises in Asia.

Last year, Vinamilk achieved a revenue target of US$1 billion, one year earlier than expected. The diary producer posted total revenues of VND22.279 trillion ($1.06 billion), up by 38 percent against 2010.

The company said it is aiming to become one of the world’s 50 largest dairy producers, with annual revenues of $3 billion by 2017.
