Meet Our Newest Team Member Jacky Au-Dong

Venture Accelerator Partners

VA Partners is pleased and excited to announce our newest team member.

Jacky Au-Duong will be starting in January 2010 and will be working with us for four months as part of his co-op program at the University of Waterloo. Jacky is currently enrolled in the Honours Economics program and brings with him a strong work ethic, results driven mindset and self-starter mentality.  He has been involved in a number of on campus volunteer activities including working as a Senior Student Director in the Arts Student Union and is Executive Director of the Newsletter Committee.   His work experience in the private sector ranges from 7-Eleven where he helped increase category sales by 10% and Town Shoes where he consistently exceeded his hourly sales quota by 15 to 20%.

Jacky will be working with VA Partners as a lead generation specialist and will be responsible for research and social media strategy development.

Jacky is also fluent in Cantonese and should VA Partners have a short-term need to penetrate the Hong Kong market, Jacky will be the go-to person.

We are excited to have Jacky as part of our team in 2010!
