My role in Micanan?
Micanan is the manufacturing company I took over from my father in 2012. My duties have evolved over the years: I started working in the warehouse when I was a teenager, moved on to marketing in my early 20’s and then CEO when my dad passed away when I was 22. I spent years on the road developing markets and sourcing materials overseas and in the last few years I’ve moved away from day-to-day operations to take a seat on the board of directors.
Micanan was a true business school and helped me develop my understanding for what it really takes to run a business; it’s the reason I was able to venture off and bring value to my new partnerships.
