Chwee Choon is responsible for the overall leadership and management of idsMED Vietnam, working hand in hand with Nguyen Van Hiep, Managing Director & SVP – Vietnam, to ensure the successful turnaround of our Vietnam business in FY2024. In particular, Chwee Choon will focus on our business in North Vietnam, whilst Hiep will focus on our business in the South.

Chwee Choon is a veteran in the Vietnamese Healthcare industry having worked mainly in Pharmaceuticals distribution in Vietnam for over 25 years since the mid-90’s.

Chwee Choon began his career with Warner Lambert after his national service in the Singapore Army, and has an illustrious track record with many global pharma companies including Boehringer Ingelheim, Eli Lilly and AstraZeneca.
