    Tram served as a board member with a co-founded AI-powered Fintech and later as the Executive Vice President of Ecosystems during the acquisition transition period.

    She led the recruitment of a new CEO, the pivot of the company business model from a B2B to a B2C and B2B2C strategy, and the company’s board decisions during the acquisition and transition process in 2021. She was instrumental in facilitating the company’s valuation outcome, multiplied by 3 from the date of the fintech incorporation and by 10 from the acquisition date. She served as an independent lead board director for another emerging growth AI in
     healthcare company where she helped the board connect to and acquire a Fortune 100-listed MedTech US Group’s offer within 4 months.


    Tram added value as a member of the EMEA Executive Board of Welch Allyn, owned since 2021 by Baxter International Inc (NYSE: BAX). She transformed the primary care eHealth market, products, and channel models and led the preparation, acquisition, and transition of the French entity by a European distributor that paved the way for the later acquisitions of a $2B entity by a large Fortune 500 listed company.

    She assumed increasing levels of Profit and Loss accountability, ultimately serving as a member of the Johnson & Johnson OCD EMEA management board and expanding its international profitability growth and footprint for the $3 Billion JNJ’s IVD division, which led to a later successful spin-off to a large investment firm. She was awarded twice the Johnson & Johnson standards of leadership achievement.

    'Tram’s dedication to developing, encouraging, and providing exposure for her portfolio companies as an entrepreneur, investor, advisor, and board member is unparalleled.

    She is an extremely valuable independent board director, engaged in creating value not only for the best interest of her companies in the health and deep tech fields, but also for other investor peers, private equity, and venture capital funds with a unique international perspective to scale and grasp opportunities, a ‘get things done’ attitude combined with her willingness to constantly test and learn to move the business forward. She has high standards with strong ethical integrity and has a proven track record in both crisis and growth management. I would recommend her for any private equity-backed company board seat.
