“I’m so excited to welcome Tina to the Asia Society family,” said Asia Society President and CEO Josette Sheeran. “Our global search for this key member of our senior leadership team found many qualified candidates, but with 25 years of proven accomplishments, success, and innovative leadership in the field of development, Tina was unique. I know that she will be an excellent addition to our able development team.”

She subsequently led the Center’s global strategy, development, operations, and communications programs across six countries.
“Asia Society is positioned well to lead in global efforts to build bridges of understanding,” said Duong. “At a time of uncertainty when the world’s rules of peaceful and respectful engagement are threatened, institutions of knowledge and dialogue are more important than ever.”
Duong’s experience spans a wide and diverse array of for-profit and not-for-profit sectors, including technology, youth development, affordable housing, environment, climate change, urban transport, sustainable cities, and foreign policy. She has worked with some of the world’s leading philanthropists, foundations, and companies to translate their objectives into viable and fundable projects and initiatives.
