Currently works in lean startup/enterprise field. Spent previous 5+ years in South-East Asia in the offshoring (software, digital marketing and BPO) industry.
I have 5+ years of experience working in the software development offshoring industry. I have taken on many roles up (running the entire show) and down (working as a staff) the ladder. By talking to me you will be able to explore the early ideas of offshoring, implement an offshore top-down, and even revamp an existing offshore operation.
I have over 5 years of B2B marketing experience. I have covered enterprise software during that time. Now I work on growth for a lean startup/enterprise consulting company. By talking to me you will be able to understand what it takes to approach your marketing and strategy priorities while spending as little money as possible.
If you are reading this, chances are that either I have been in your shoes before...or I have the capacity to understand what's going on. By all means I am not a long-term therapist. I am your temporary therapist (until you can get yourself together and get a real one). I have done this for way too many people and no longer care to keep count. By talking to me, I hope one of two results: (1) you're less likely to do something you'll regret later (2) you have good food for thought and become more aware of yourself.
Simply an excellent strategic person. I have been working with him for over 4 years and I can't begin to express my appreciation for the time that we have worked together. Although he isn't a developer by background, his knowledge in the web application domain is outstanding. I've learned a lot from him. I would love to have a chance to participate with him again in an innovative project sometime in the future.
Kenny was put in a very difficult situation when he assumed responsibility for rebuilding our Vietnam office from scratch. With limited resources and on his own he managed to successfully establish a Quality Control, Marketing and Development organization that proofed to be invaluable for SECUDE.
His excellent business development skills, paired with incredible inter-personal skills helped in building up a team of 40 highly motivated individuals and contributed to SECUDE's global success. I can highly recommend Kenny to any team!
Having Kenny in the team mean you are a step ahead regarding strategic direction. He looks at things from multiple perspective. He possesses a strong analytical skill while working hard toward the objective. It is my pleasure to work with him and there is no doubt to get him again if there is opportunity.
I had the pleasure of hiring Kenny almost right out of college sign unseen. In our interview, I strongly recommended he look for a higher paying position where he would be paid commensurate with his skills but he decided he could learn more in the trenches of a struggling division in a country he had never visited. He would not be denied.
A couple years after being hired at an entry level position, he's actually doing my job, running the entire marketing and R&D team as General Manager. I cannot express my admiration of his willingness to work hard, speak honestly, and support his teammates. I have no doubt he will excel in whatever position he decides to accept and would gladly hire him for my next venture.
Kenny and I worked together at SECUDE. Kenny was the main driver for the company's online marketing activities and its branding. He handled many projects and stakeholders in parallel and did a terrific job there. He is a very smart and versatile person. I loved to work with him and hope to do business together in the future.
Kenny worked as a research assistant for me on projects related to venture capital & private equity, footwear production, and winemaking. With minimal guidance and great attention to detail, Kenny produced exceptionally high quality data sets for these research projects. Moreover, while studying abroad in China, Kenny demonstrated remarkable initiative and leadership skills by organizing a research team of local students to support my ongoing research projects. He continues to hone his abilities to excel in global business in his current position in Vietnam. Additionally, Kenny demonstrated a strong commitment to community service while at UC Berkeley by serving as a mentor for the Young Entrepreneurs at Haas program.
With no reservations, I strongly recommend Kenny for any position that requires unusual effort and attention to detail, especially those that also require a strong personal commitment to getting work done well in challenging work environments. Based on my experience with hundreds of UC Berkeley and Emory undergraduate students and numerous early-career professionals, I would say that Kenny is easily in the top 5-10% in terms of aptitude, work ethic, and professionalism.
I know Kenny as very professional marketing manager. He has deep knowledge in the current Internet Marketing technologies. I very much liked to work with him.
