Sapa Investment Group

Our Amazing Team

We are proud to be a minority-owned and operated company that believes in workforce diversity. Furthermore, SIG is lead by one of the greatest business minds in Salt Lake City, Mai Nguyen, which has been recognized for numerous business awards. We are one of the most diverse investment groups in Utah representing a wide range of ethnicities. We believe that our differences provides us a competitive advantage as we are able to provide a different business perspective that others may not see.

Son

Son is a co-founder and oversees the financial and investment arms of the organization. He has more than 25 years of business development and hospitality experience in the Salt Lake Valley. He thinks critically about every decision and cares deeply about the welfare of the local community.

Narith

As a thought-leader for the organization, Narith has a unique ability to empower those around him. His insights when it comes to brand strategy are essential to the long-term growth of the organization. With his warm communication style and jocular nature, Narith puts everyone at ease.

Mai

Mai is the co-founder, CEO, and visionary leader of the organization. She empowers each member to take action by stating clear goals and outlining a strategic plan. Her generosity and compassion are shown through every little thing she does. She connects with every employee on a personal level to help elevate and inspire them to become a greater version of him or herself. She looks for any opportunity to help those in need. 

Max

Max has been with the company for a very long time. He is dedicated to seeing the organization grow and helps provide the opportunities to others that allowed him to work his way up to the top. It’s odd to see Max not be one of the last people in the office every night. He’s married to the job and understands better than most how this organization is continuously evolving and he looks to support it during major changes.

Paul

Paul started as a busser and worked his way up to the top. Regardless of how far he rises up the ladder, Paul never stops thinking about those around him and how he can make a difference in their lives. His idealism and logic make him invaluable and he’s always listening..literally. (He might have hidden microphones.)

Mo

Watching Mo design buildings is like watching an artist paint. He critically thinks about every detail he puts into his architectural plans. He is very receptive to others’ opinions on his work but also confident enough to trust his own intuition. If he’s not working he’s usually playing soccer, spending time with friends, or looking for a new burger joint in town.

Chu

Chu is known for her strong work ethic, positive attitude, and natural curiosity for the people and things around her. She loves to help others learn and actualize their goals. She’s big on social issues and understands what needs to be done to lift others up.

Vincent

Vincent is part of the original staff and has worn many hats at this organization. He always welcomes new peers and enjoys seeing the company evolve. He oversees processing due to his keen eye for details and efficiency. He is dedicated to see the company expand operations into other states.

Mimi

Mimi never really slows down in her personal or professional life. Once she becomes passionate about a particular hobby – biking, painting, skiing  – she won’t stop until she is satisfied that she pursued her goal wholeheartedly. Similarly, at work, Mimi pushes her limits constantly and loves to share her progress with others.

Michael

Michael is outgoing and friendly with all those who cross his path. His ability to befriend anyone makes him a natural leader in the office. He says his favorite subject in school was hookey, which means he was probably out networking before anyone else.

Aly

Aly never shies away from a challenge or competition, including VEX Robotic competitions in school. She’s resourceful, detail-oriented, and flexible, all necessary traits to make her a great software engineer. She loves a cappella music and doting on her baby niece.

Dane

Dane is either in the office, with his two dogs, or outdoors. His sentiment may not always show on the surface, but it’s embedded into his work. His dedication and hard work never go unnoticed, and he will always speak up for what he believes is right.

Nashelly

If there is office banter, Nashelly usually gets the last word, and there’s a reason for that. Her clever retorts and vast industry knowledge allow her to make conversation with anyone. She’s assertive and expects others to follow through on their word. EDM music is one her favorite genres.

Clint

Clint’s creative mind is good for a lot of things: product development and graphic design – but most notably, a good comeback. Come at Clint with a joke and he’ll easily twist it back at you. Engage at your own risk.

Dan

Dan’s business strategy carries a lot of weight; he is able to break down complex problems into digestible pieces. When things seem stressful, Dan finds a way to break the tension with his light-hearted and calming sense of humor. If he has an extra tab open on his laptop it’s probably an 80’s Hair Band concert.

Kathryn

“Kathryn knows” is arguably one of the mostly used phrases in the office. Her ability to help others and find solutions makes her essential to keep this company afloat. Endlessly resourceful, a donut lover, and a self-described nerd. 

Jared

Jared uses his witty, upbeat personality to win people over and present compelling evidence for whatever argument he wants to make. When his colleagues get stuck in a box, Jared is able to get them out using forward-thinking solutions. He’s a workaholic by nature but sometimes you can catch him on the golf course or spending time with his dogs.

Lien

Lien’s main objective is to help SAPA give back as much as possible. She understands in order to do that, she has to build a team that is efficient and effective in their respective roles. She harvests the best qualities in others to create a team that’s capable of serving the community in an impactful way. She wants the best for her team and values loyalty greatly.

Matt

Matt is the president of Idea Makers. He is a lifelong inventor and passionate about product development.

Ronny is one of the main content creators for the organization. His natural aptitude for visuals has made him essential in the storytelling aspect. He never turns down an opportunity to create or share his work or the work of his peers. Ronny is always busy, but he finds the time to collaborate with anyone that will have him.

Mark

Mark thrives at content strategy, asking the right questions, and understanding others. He gets excited about good ideas but isn’t afraid to admit if something isn’t working for him or the organization. He loves to get into a good argument, basically drinks hot sauce, and needs subtitles on everything for no reason.

Hoang is the altruistic backbone of this company. Community engagement is her speciality: she serves on five different boards and helps bring resources to underserved populations. She invests in her employees and assists with opportunities they may not normally have. She handles governmental and public affairs for the organization. As a mother of two young boys, not much can shake her at this point.

Mia

Mia has extreme care for details when handling sensitive numerical data as well as when she is listening to those around her. She’s a boba enthusiast and can easily sway others to sneak off with her to get a treat, even creating an office tradition of boba Fridays.

Tagan

Tagan is all about helping others. Her easy-going personality helps her stay cool in stressful situations. She prides herself on her ability to find new ways to streamline various tasks. She’s big on snacks, Hawaiian food, and sushi.

Max D

Max is one of the youngest members of the team but his problem-solving skills are top-notch when it comes to software development. He is dedicated to seeing his projects completed and has a good attitude about any challenges he faces.

Mark

When Ricky walks through the door the volume immediately goes up. He is outgoing and uses an empathetic, energetic approach in everything he does. He loves hip-hop, outdoor activities, and meeting new people. Ricky speaks very fast which attests to the excitement he brings to everything he does.

Cris

Cris is a true team player: His tenacity and hard work ethic are derived from seeing the successes of his peers; they push him to be better – and he usually responds effectively. He loves to donate his time and sees the intrinsic value of community and helping others.
