HCMC – Pham Thanh Tung has been picked as new board chairman at Tri Viet Securities Joint Stock Corporation (TVB) for the 2022-2024 tenure, with effect from December 2, replacing his predecessor Bui Minh Tuan.
Tuan resigned from his post of TVB board chairman the same day. He earlier tendered his resignation, citing health reasons.

Regarding Tung, he was serving as vice chairman of the TVB board before being elected TVB chairman. He has over 20 years of experience in finance and securities.
Prior to his appointment, Tung had registered to sell two million TVB shares from November 29 to December 18. If the transactions are done, he could earn some VND11.2 billion, adding that his ownership in TVB would decline from 2.48% to 0.69%, or from over 2.77 million TVB shares to around 77,000 shares.
Closing the trading session today, December 6, TVB lost 6.9% over the session earlier at VND5,260.
