Winnie Wong

Country Manager, Vietnam, Cambodia & Laos, Asia Pacific, Mastercard

Winnie Wong is responsible for growing Mastercard’s business in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. With her experience in consumer and corporate payments and banking, she brings fresh perspective to the markets on digital payments and solutions.

Prior to her current role, Winnie was the Commercial B2B Sales Head for the region, where she was responsible for driving growth for Mastercard’s Business-to-Business (B2B) solutions across Asia Pacific.

Statement

It’s my honor to submit my application for the above.

Mastercard is a new member of AmCham Vietnam-HCMC. With Mastercard’s vision of World Beyond Cash, we are actively working with private and public entities to promote digital payments in Vietnam. As a payment technology company, we provide innovative, digital solutions to banks, governments and strategic partners here and around the world. Having Mastercard on the Board will bring expertise and diversity to AmCham, especially on digitalization in payments, financial sector and fintech.

As the Country Manager of Mastercard and a woman leader, I am also very keen to contribute to the growth of women in Vietnam. I believe sharing my personal experiences in growing my career as an Asian woman in American/multinational companies yet balancing my roles as a wife and mother will add value to AmCham, your members and the communities we serve.

My vision for AmCham-HCMC is for it to keep growing its relevance and trust as the preferred partner to Vietnam’s growth and development through the value that its members bring to Vietnam.
