A long-time passion for Asia brought me to build an expertise in business development in Asia region, through work experiences in Asia – Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Hongkong, Taiwan and Southern China include provinces near Shanghai. Various business environments: Buying & Trading Offices, Sourcing, Garment Industry, Hardlines Industries like Furniture, Sporting Goods, Electrical, and Seasonal.
Have very operational positions: Chief Representative & Office Manager in Xiamen China, Country Manager & Chief Representative in Vietnam, Sourcing Manager for South East Asia, Sourcing and Product Development Manager in Philippines, & Hongkong; and other positions that were in support to the business: Sourcing, Product Development, Product Management (Merchandising), Quality Assurance & Control System, Shipping, and Administrative.
Have been always very interested in sourcing and product development activities in Asia, where the "make it happen" competency and business acumen are as important as multi-cultural awareness and interpersonal skills.
