About Me

Over the course of my career, I have worked through with companies from the United States, Hongkong, Malaysia, Singapore and United Kingdom. Have experiences in selling goods, previously more of furniture in United States, Canada, Europe, United Kingdom and Australia. Connected companies from those countries with potential manufacturers in Asia. Have conducted business (buying) and sourced product in Asia - the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Taiwan, and Southern China like Fujian province and include province near Shanghai - Anhui, Jiangsu & Zhejiang.

As the companies for which I have worked with, I have set up their offices and showrooms; manage the companies representative office; lead sourcing and product development; act as mentor, coach and guide each employee on their specific jobs like in merchandising; work on the Quality Assurance and Quality Control System; supervise shipping and logistic; and administer management skills, solving practical problems and day to day operations.

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.

I now often leverage my experience in working or servicing a company for their sourcing expansion in Asia - The Philippines,Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia,Thailand, Taiwan and Southern China.

Specialties: Sourcing, Product Development, Product Merchandising, Quality Assurance & Quality Control, Shipping / Logistic and Administrative.

Company and Representative Office Formation, Furniture, Hardline Products, Consumable, Softlines, and some Consumer Goods.
