On his time so far in Vietnam, Bill says "As for my current role, it is both extremely rewarding and challenging. Our management team jokes that we run into a big surprise every day that requires a solution, because it is such a fast and fluid business. Vietnam is literally at a crossroads between being one of many developing countries and a major global player in a variety of industries, and it is exciting to be able to witness both the country’s and the peoples’ transformation firsthand.”
