Christy Le, CEO of Gojek’s Vietnam affiliate GoViet, is leaving her post after five months, Techinasia reported.
This is the second departure from the same role in less than a year. Le’s predecessor, Duc Nguyen, left in March along with chief growth officer Linh Nguyen.
GoViet has confirmed her exit. “When we start out on a journey with new leadership, it is always with the best of intentions. However, after five months at the company, Christy has decided to take a different path. We always work hard to find a mutually agreeable way forward but were unable to do so in this instance, so we wish her the best in her future endeavors,” a spokesperson said.
“We are confident that the existing management team in Vietnam, supported by the knowledge and expertise of our international team, will ensure Go-Viet continues to create a positive impact while enjoying the exponential growth we’ve seen over the past year,” the company representative added.
According to a report by ABI Research, GoViet has 10.3% of the ride-hailing market in the country, compared to Grab’s 72.9%.
Prior to GoViet, Le was the country director of Vietnam for Facebook as well as a co-founder of Misfit Wearables, a smartwatch maker that was acquired by Fossil Group for US$260 million in 2015.
