Technology group’s dollar millionaire
In April 2014, Nguyen Khac Thanh was appointed to the post of deputy general director of FPT, the country’s largest information technology group.
Thanh, in the eyes of FPTers, is a very special man. He goes everywhere with his bicycle, an old, ugly one which people say “is refused by thieves”.
Thanh rides to meetings with partners and customers, who are all polite and professional.
Bui Quang Ngoc, one of FPT’s founders, reportedly gave Thanh money and asked him to buy a motorbike. But Thanh still is seen driving the worthless bicycle.
Thanh is not only a talent in the software industry, but also a real dollar millionaire. It is estimated that the amount of FPT shares Thanh holds is worth $40 million.
However, Thanh still likes traveling on his old bicycle.
Thanh is one of two high-ranking executives at FPT who do not have private cars.
