Huynh Thanh Phongstarted his work in financial services and insurance in Asia and is now a well-respected figure in the global insurance industry with experience in several leadership roles, currently as the CEO and Executive Director of the FWD Group.
Phong’s life philosophy is that we must always be prepared so that when an opportunity presents itself, we can take advantage of it. He did that by developing a market for life insurance in Asian communities that had never bought such products before. He created long-term wealth, jobs, and economic development and improved the economy from a macro- and microeconomic perspective. His leadership advice is to always leverage our strengths and not pretend to be what or who we are not.
Phong is passionate about helping people. He finds different ways to do that while developing strong relationships. He believes in karma and his vision is grounded in doing good. If we do that, good things happen to us. His goal and passion are to improve the social safety net throughout Asia.
Phong also urges people to have passion for their work and to wake up every day excited about what they will do. We need to be prepared to work hard. The harder we work, the luckier we get. And financial reward comes later.
