HQO Role: Senior Buyer
Place of Birth: Born and raised in Saigon, Vietnam. Immigrated to Southern California at age 14.
Education: B.S. Business Management
Why Liam Chose HQO: I have a background in sourcing and managing a supply chain but have never been able to match my career with my passions for health and cooking. When I saw an ad for the position, I thought it would be a great fit. I was affirmed with that feeling when I went through the interview process. From my first phone calls with Toby (VP of Supply Chain) and Raju (HQO’s CEO) to meeting the entire team, I have been blown away by the time and energy HQO not only puts into serving their customers but recruiting, training and welcoming new team members. I’m so happy to be part of HQO family!
Why HQO Chose Liam: Liam not only demonstrated a great supply management skills set from his time at International Paper and Quickstart, but he also shows great drive, interpersonal skills and a sense of adventure. Those strengths married with his passion for health and wellness made him an easy pick for our growing team. We’re very excited to watch him develop and add value to our supply chain. Welcome Liam!
A Little About Liam: One of Liam’s favorite quotes is by the great Mark Twain, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
From backpacking in Asia for six months to cruising around stateside on his Harley Davidson Sportster, Liam is an adventurous soul with a desire to enjoy the outdoors any way possible. Just ask him about that time in Yosemite. Yeah, thank goodness we didn’t know about that one before we hired him! ;0) (Liam’s reply, “Ah, ya live and learn.”)
