We have hired a ringer for our expansion into the Southern California market. His name is Minh Tran and he brings with him 15 years of elevator/escalator industry experience. He also has a Pepperdine University MBA. Wow! Not only is Minh smart and experienced, but he also is well-rounded. He listens to old-school jazz, classic rock, and classical music.
Ask him how he learned to be thankful for what he has – he worked as a volunteer on a banana plantation in Costa Rica when he was in high school. Another experience that helped Minh round out who he is today – he once got on the wrong bus going camping and ended up serving in the Marines for 5 years and was finally “released” for good behavior.
Other than the bus incident, Minh is a good listener, he’s loyal and kind-hearted. Just ask his wife and two boys.
