COO at Colliers
Winnie Lam is a Canadian who has been working in Vietnam since 2005 albeit a short stint in the region while still managing the business operation here for her then employer. Winnie is currently the COO of Colliers International for the Vietnam franchise operation, an international real estate consulting firm listed in the Toronto exchange. Winnie set on the Board of CanCham between 2010 & 2014 and was the President for 2 terms before leaving Vietnam for the region and returning to Vietnam full time in late 2015. Winnie is originally from Hong Kong and has set on the Board for the Hong Kong Business Association Vietnam since 2011 and is the General Secretary to the Board since 2016 upon returning to Vietnam full time. She was responsible for the restructuring of the association secretariat which included the set up of the complete SOP, update of the association charter as well as steering the Charity Committee to date. Winnie has strong community presence in Vietnam having been involved with many government initiatives on labor code review as the Head of the HR Committee of AmCham then and continued to be involved with the VBF HR Committee. After a few years of absence from the CanCham board, Winnie is now well settled into her role here and is looking to rejoin with her decision to stay in Vietnam for the longer term. She would like to leverage her experience and relationships in the community and in the region to help CanCham stay mainstream for the benefits for both Canada and Vietnam.
