Tung “Ted” Pham
Born in the rural outskirts of Hanoi, Tung Pham has taken the reigns from his family that began producing plywood from a small factory in 1997. In his university years, Tung chose to study business for two years in the United States at Cal State Fulerton. Following his time in University, Tung, with his eager spirit, moved straight into plywood production, as is the family tradition. Tung worked his way from a quality control inspector to factory manager in a period of only 2 years. Tung is known for enjoying work so much he often doesn’t leave for home until late night hours. Along with his family, he has helped DT Plywood to grow and flourish.
