Truong to guide Vena’s legal affairs as SVP, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary
Today, we're delighted to announce that Le Huong Truong has been promoted to Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary and will join Vena’s executive leadership team led by CEO Hunter Madeley.
“It’s important for all leaders to find the right balance of speed and certainty, especially in our high-growth environment,” said Madeley. “Le’s strong, stable advice and counsel have provided a solid foundation for Vena’s continued success. We are fortunate to be able to lean on and learn from Le as we continue to build our company and culture.”
Truong joined Vena as Vice President and General Counsel in 2020, leading the legal function to deliver on its core mandate of managing risk and driving growth at scale.

Prior to that, she served as Legal Counsel for the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation and as an associate at the law firm Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP.
Truong holds a bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of Waterloo. She also earned a master’s degree in Business Administration and a Juris Doctor from the University of Toronto.
“It’s an honor and a privilege to serve on the executive leadership team alongside Hunter and so many other talented Venanites,” Truong said. “Coming off a record-setting first half, I am excited at the opportunity to help guide our company in its mission and in the continued service of our customers.”
