Tell us about yourself


32 years old, married and father of a little daughter of 10 months.

(This should not be posted, but to your knowledge - if you are to have insight into what I generally chase with everything.)


How did you start using HubSpot? Was it in your current role, or a different role?


I started working with HubSpot 4 years ago in my own company and still work with it as Marketing Manager at MCB today.


Tell us a little bit about your company and your position.


MCB has just had its 20th anniversary as a company. In the year 2000 MCB started their own CMS and 10 years later came to their e-commerce platform which today is used by 350+ larger companies in the north.

We are 50 employees in the company, 15 of which are located in our office in Hanoi.

As Marketing Manager, I lead all our marketing, strategy and HubSpot customers.


What do you do for fun outside of work?


Once self-employed, always a little self-employed.
Have two projects that are being worked on when the time is right.

And otherwise works
I with young entrepreneurs and help them get off to a good start and eliminate the mistakes they often make.


If you could have dinner with anyone in the world. (past or present), who would it be and why?

Thank you for sharing @MAC-MCB! This is a great piece! 🙂 


I have two questions: 


1. What was your Shopify business?!


2. What would be your top piece of advice for young entrepreneurs?

Hi @jennysowyrda.

Started my own brand that was sold as posters. 🙂
My best advice to entrepreneurs must be that you do not do it right if you do not make mistakes along the way. 📈
