The ‘never seen before’ honoring for the Level 5 Tech Expert
This year’s highlight lies in the way the Level 5 Tech Expert – CTO of FPT IS Nguyen Xuan Viet – was unveiled. A special painting was brought to the spotlight, and was in all black before Nguyen Van Khoa, FPT CEO, threw glitters on the canvas, revealing the portrait of Viet, who had been working at FPT for over 2 decades.
The painting was a surprise to the CTO of FPT IS.
“Covid made us unable to gather yet opened an opportunity for us to communicate and experience technology despite the distance. Even miles away, I can feel everyone’s emotions and wishes,” he said emotionally.
Standing next to his long-time friend and colleague – FPT CTO Vu Anh Tu, Viet recalled his feelings and memories with FPT, from his “dreamlike” time in the first FPT office at 56 Hoang Dieu Street, to his highs and lows and his ‘reunion’ with the technology community. As he received the first Tech Expert badge to be made of 24K Gold, the CTO expressed that with the cooperation of all, FPT IS’s technology will make a grand return to its prime.
In the past 8 years, FPT had honored 9 Level 5 Tech Experts, who spearheads FPT towards becoming a comprehensive digital service provider that are top among the world.
While Nguyen Xuan Viet acknowledged himself as “not quite a model Tech Expert”, for he had taken breaks for management and business operations, he still offered valuable advices to future generation: to keep their fire, maintain their bravery, venture in new realm, and contribute their fullest to the corporation. He also believed that the firm’s benefits were adequate to retain the best of the crops – those most skilled and passionate.
FPT started its Tech Expert program in 2013, with the aim to transform FPT into a full-fledged technology corporation. Since then, it had become an annual event to attract and encourage participation in the corporation’s mutual activities. Over 8 years, the events had honored nearly 300 Tech Experts in the corporation.
