ZICO breaks up Vietnam management into three roles
Zaid Ibrahim & Co. has appointed three new leaders in its Vietnamese offices, with Phuong Nguyen being named managing partner in Hanoi and Kevin Hawkins and Tay Zi Li being named co-executive partners in Ho Chi Minh City.
Corporate and finance partner Nguyen joined the firm in Hanoi from Mayer Brown JSM. Corporate partner Hawkins also worked at Mayer Brown several years ago, but joins ZICO now from VILAF. Lastly, finance partner Tay joined ZICO in 2011.
The appointments come in response to the departure of current Vietnam managing partner David Lim, who is taking up an in-house position in Singapore. He has been managing partner since 2012.
