|MasterCard appointments for IndoChina, Thailand and Myanmar
Corro and Vogels become country managers
MasterCard has appointed Antonio Corro as country manager of Thailand and Myanmar, and Arn Vogels as country manager of IndoChina (Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia).
Based in Bangkok, Corro will focus on driving the country’s expansion strategy for Thailand and Myanmar. He takes over from Gregg Hirano.
He was previously country manager of the IndoChina region overseeing Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar. In Myanmar, he played a key role in MasterCard becoming the first international payments network to grant a license to a Myanmar bank, paving the way for the first international card acceptance in the country.
Taking over the role of country manager of IndoChina is Arn Vogels, who has moved from MasterCard Europe where he held senior account management roles and was responsible for managing relationships with several global banks with Asian operations. Vogels will be based in Ho Chi Minh, and will focus on continuing to drive the expansion of MasterCard in the IndoChina region.
“Thailand, Myanmar and IndoChina are key markets in South East Asia with enormous potential for growth,” said Matthew Driver, president, South East Asia, MasterCard. “With their predominantly young populations and positive underlying fundamentals, the outlook for continued growth in these markets is very high.”
Corro and Vogels have been with MasterCard since 2001 and 1999 respectively.
