This week, Jason is joined by Henry Ma, the CEO of the embroidery machine manufacturer, Ricoma. Over the last few years, Henry has turned his company into a powerhouse within the embroidery industry, his unique approach that’s revolutionized an otherwise quiet industry and has led to Ricoma being called the ‘Chick-fil-A’ of embroidery. In part one, Henry shares how he transitioned from investment banking to embroidery, the challenges of taking over a family business, and how “small wins” can help leaders gain confidence.
About Henry: NYU Stern School of Business graduate, Henry Ma, began his career in the finance industry with Investment Banking at Goldman Sachs. Joining the Ricoma team in 2015, Ma recently grew into the CEO role after helping the company quintuple its revenue in five years as COO. Featured in industry publications, such as Impressions Magazine and Printwear, and on podcasts, including Entrepreneur’s Action & Ambition and the SocialPros podcast, Ma now hosts the Apparel Academy show on YouTube and is continuously striving to be a thought leader on entrepreneurship, digital marketing, and social media.
