Dinh Ba Thanh, chairman and CEO of DatVietVAC, the largest media, entertainment and technology group in Vietnam, has won this year’s ACES Eminent Leaders Award and Asia HRD Movers and Shakers Award.
Chairman & CEO of DatVietVAC, Dinh Ba Thanh, receives the Eminent Leaders Award in Singapore on October 11.
He personally received the ACES Award at the Fairmont Hotel, Singapore, while Trieu The Hiep, Acting Group HR Director, received the Asia HRD award at the White Palace in HCM City on his behalf as the ceremonies were held simultaneously on October 11.
DatVietVAC was founded in 1994 with three subsidiaries: DatViet Media (Vietnam’s premier media company), DatViet OOH (Vietnam’s first out-of-home advertising company) and DDB Vietnam (Vietnam’s first affiliate media agency).
DatVietVAC’s goal was to transform the country’s media and entertainment landscape.
Since its inception, the group has expanded and now has 11 companies, each of which has made a mark in a different segment of the media and entertainment industry.
They include Dong Tay Promotion, the largest producer of TV reality shows; TK-L, the first and largest television licensing company; M&T Pictures, Viet Nam’s largest producer of TV dramas; DID TV, the first private TV channel in Viet Nam; and Nomad MGMT, the first international talent management agency in Viet Nam.
Part of the DatVietVAC group, Nomad MGMT has become the premier talent management agency in Vietnam, achieving the highest international standards.
Last year VNR500 ranked DatVietVAC first in the Vietnamese media and television industry while FAST500 ranked it 11th overall in the list of fastest growing companies.
DatVietVAC continues to be the forefront of the media and entertainment industry. By integrating media, entertainment and technology vertically, it has become the largest in Vietnam, transforming the nature of entertainment and media and access to them across the country.
Its multimedia ecosystem commands first place in streaming with 6 billion views and 13 million subscribers.
September 2018 marked a milestone for DatVietVAC: it reached a monthly average of 1 billion views. Much of DatVietVAC’s output exemplifies the type of media that is actively changing the face of media and entertainment in Viet Nam.
‘The Lightning Quiz’, produced by Dong Tay Promotion and ‘Stick Rice, Plain Rice’, Vietnam’s no.1 family movie reflect the company vision to transform the media and entertainment in Viet Nam.
