Phung Ngo-Burns

Chief Accounting Officer and Treasurer, NexTier

As Chief Accounting Officer and Treasurer at NexTier Oilfield Solutions, the second largest oilfield service company in the US, Phung Ngo-Burns has travelled a long and winding road in achieving the personal and professional success she enjoys today. As a highly successful leader in a male-dominated industry, Phung passionately believes in diversity and inclusion, empowering her treasury teammates and encouraging them to achieve their best, delegating authority and allowing them to “own” their roles. In particular, she mentors women teammates, offering guidance and wisdom from her own personal experience and nurturing their career and leadership aspirations. Her abiding belief is that the more her team shines, the better it reflects on her and the business. As an Asian-American, Phung understands first-hand the challenges faced by minorities and women. And she has committed herself to promoting diversity and inclusiveness practices in all her undertakings, because she knows that personal responsibility is the key to change.
