He has been promoted from entry level to a Corporate Trainer within the organization.

When asked about Huy’s character the management team said “I cannot recall a project/problem that was assigned to Huy that was not completed/resolved in a timely manner and with a positive attitude and this definitely rubs off of the other corporate trainers he coordinates with.” We are lucky to have such a diligent worker as Huy . He is competent and confident. He readily shares his experience to help other succeed in meeting their responsibilities. Huy is a team player and has aided in the organizations growth.
Huy Vo graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Business Administration from James Madison University.
