An entrepreneur and business development expert, Yvon Nguyen is the CEO of VANT4GE, LLC, a marketing and business intelligence firm serving family-owned businesses to global corporations. VANT4GE specializes in target marketing, business management, training and development, sales strategies, and branding. Nguyen also places a strong emphasis on multicultural marketing and community relations.
In 2016, Nguyen additionally launched a luxury, ready-to-wear women’s clothing line, Yvon Lux, which caters to petite “profashionals” and celebrates confidence, class, and curves. Through uncompromised labor and ethical industry practices, Yvon Lux is filling custom design orders now and will be widely available for distribution in late 2016. The clothing line boosts empowerment of petite professionals while filling an unmet need for petite-framed clothing options for the office, boardroom and other business and social gatherings.
Nguyen is also a community leader and dedicated board member for the Vietnamese American Chamber of Commerce, the oldest and largest organization of its kind serving the Vietnamese American population. In addition to leading the member relations committee, Nguyen plays an integral role in forging new partnerships on behalf of the Chamber. This year Nguyen connected Boeing to education-specific Chamber members to facilitate STEM workshops for diverse populations of middle school students.
She is passionate about supporting community causes, such as youth development, as well as nonprofits focused on women’s empowerment, abused children and human trafficking survivors. Upon dedicating nearly 400 hours in planning and coordination, Nguyen hosted Season of Change in 2015, a fundraiser benefiting nonprofit Community Service Programs and the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force. The event raised $11,500 to support human trafficking survivors and spread awareness for human trafficking within Orange County’s Asian American communities.
A Yorba Linda, Calif. resident, Nguyen has been featured in the Los Angeles Times, Orange County Register, Voice of OC, Nguoi Viet Daily, Little Saigon TV, and various other media outlets and blogs. She is available as an expert source on various topics such as sales strategies, business development, customer service, employee training and development, community relations, target marketing and multicultural marketing.
