ACDL executive chairman and CEO Michael Kelly has been elected as Vice Chairman of the AmCham Vietnam Board by his fellow governors.
In his new role as Vice Chairman, he will serve as a principal advocate for U.S. businesses and investment in Vietnam, expanding on the work he has done to date in his capacity as executive chairman and CEO of The Grand Ho Tram Strip – Vietnam’s leading integrated resort and the largest U.S. private equity investment in the country.
The Grand Ho Tram Strip is one of the most prominent U.S. investments in Vietnam, with over USD 1.1 billion in deployed and committed capital. Under Mr. Kelly’s direction, The Grand Ho Tram Strip has accelerated investment, coordinating closely with national and provincial leadership in Vietnam to carefully align its developments with Vietnam’s tourism goals.
Beyond his new executive role on the AmCham Board of Governors, Mr. Kelly also serves as the Chairman of the Tourism Committee, through which he has supported Vietnam’s efforts to draw additional tourism from the United States and around the world.
“Mr. Kelly’s election as Vice Chairman reflects his proven dedication and commitment to supporting U.S. business interests in Vietnam, as well as the importance of The Grand Ho Tram Strip as a major stakeholder in U.S.-Vietnam commercial relations,” said ACDL in a press release.
