Tammy’s Corner: A moment in time
I hope you had a wonderful week!
Let me just start off Tammy’s Corner this week with a note of appreciation.
July 15th was our CTO and Co-Founder Mario Gomez Lozada’s birthday. For those who don’t know Mario, here is a little tale I would like to share. 😉
Mario was born in El Salvador in the early 70s to a family of little means. Despite much hardship growing up in his small town, Mario was a smart young man. When he was 18, Mario received a full scholarship to go to America to pursue Computer Science at the University of Kansas. He started his career in the mid 1990s in the Internet industry and spent many years working in the States, Japan and Singapore for Fortune 500 companies like Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse before he met our CEO Mike Kayamori and moved to Vietnam to build QUOINE.
When Mario first started, the team in Vietnam only had a few developers and the Vietnam office was Mario’s apartment. For two years, our CTO worked without a salary. Mario often recalls the story of the time one of the developers helped buy him his $2 lunch because Mario couldn’t afford it.
We are no longer working in a tiny office in Mario’s apartment anymore. QUOINE’s office is on the 22nd floor of the amazing Saigon Center, situated only steps away from the iconic Ben Thanh market and Bitexco tower. Our team has grown from a group of less than 10 people to a team of over 150 people in Vietnam Office alone.
Happy birthday Mario! 🎂🙌🏻🍻
Thank you so much from all of us QUOINERS!
Back to the main highlights of this week. 😉
