Amret welcomes a new CEO

The Advans Group would like to announce that after over 20 years as CEO, on 21 January 2019 Mr Phalarin Chea retired as CEO of Amret. Mr Chea will be succeeded by Mr Dos Dinn, current Deputy CEO. This appointment ensures a smooth transition of leadership at Amret and will enable the institution to continue in its mission to accelerate financial inclusion in Cambodia and respond to its clients’ evolving financial service needs.
