WHO WE ARE
Since the dawn of this millennium, Lula 101 has been providing the coolest apparel and accessories brands to Asian markets. Our team works equally well with brands, wholesalers and retailers in the streetwear and action sports industries, which is why we’ve built a strong reputation for offering Service, Styles & Smiles.
Formerly known as Lula Apparel, Inc., Lula 101 is a sales and distribution leader in Asian markets and continues to expand its business operations and partnerships as more companies learn how we can help their business grow. Here is how we do it: Read more …
Armed with an M.I.T. background (Made in Taiwan), Sherry is Lula 101’s secret weapon. She has been serving up styles and smiles to Asian markets since the dawn of this millennium, using Lula 101’s home base in sunny Southern California as a launch pad for her globally focused business, which includes partnerships in Taiwan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines and the United States. And the best is yet to come. An avid traveler who speaks multiple languages, Sherry knows Asia and the Pacific like a good friend. In tune with both sides of the industry, she works closely with brands and retailers to create seamless business opportunities.
Having built the flagship enterprise in America, along with satellite operations in key international locations, Sherry takes a hands-on approach to doing business. Her internal clock is set in several time zones, which is why new business partners are often surprised to receive her Skypes when everyone here has been sleeping for hours.
During her travels, you might find her promoting U.S. brands in Bangkok on one day, conducting a pivotal lunch meeting in Hong Kong the following day and overseeing business operations in Taiwan just a few hours later. The big mystery is, how the heck does she manage this and look so refreshed all the time?
Bill is a management and marketing mastermind with five key skills: Engineer (able to construct new business models as well as build bridges with clients and vendors; Juggler (excels in managing multiple projects concurrently); Detective (strong attention to detail along with problem-solving and follow-through capabilities); Critical thinker (able to understand the root cause and find the answer no matter how hard it tries to hide); and Community organizer (exceptional team-building and engagement skills).
Bill oversees Lula’s dynamic team and provides operational, sales and marketing guidance for the Lula 101/Regain International enterprise. With decades of experience in strategic planning, management, marketing, PR and brand-building, Bill has been doing this for so many years that it boggles his own mind.
However, Bill is crystal clear on why he is dedicated to helping Lula 101 become a global leader in the industry: He loves collaborating with a team of dynamic professionals who can’t seem to wipe the smiles off their faces. (After all, he’d feel pretty silly if it was only him having so much fun.)
Fulvert loves his work, and it shows. Seemingly never at rest, he is the backbone of Lula 101’s business operations. He also oversees sales staff and manages customer service, helping to ensure that our vendors and customers have a topflight experience with us at all times. (Heck, his easy nature even makes our staff want to do business with him.)
With his business administrative college background, coupled with nearly a decade of Lula 101 immersion, Fulvert is an operations rock star when it comes to improving sales, logistics, billing, social media and communications with vendors and customers.
In another life, Fulvert would be a professional soccer player, but the injuries he often sustains from amateur weekend games remind him that he’s much better off in this life.
As a key member of the Lula 101 empire and esteemed advisor, Stephy brings years of experience and many diverse skills to the Lula 101 table. Holding a bachelor’s degree in Accounting Administration, Stephy has proven to be a Jill-of-all-trades at Lula, from finance-related matters, client negotiations, sales, inventory management (and making sure the team has plenty of advance notice for the next Lula 101 social gathering).
Stephy also works alongside the crew to get customer orders packed, labeled and shipped to our Asian markets with amazing efficiency. Yes, she can juggle tasks in ways that would give the rest of us headaches, but Stephy also puts together her own stylish outfits that make us wonder if she leads a secret life auditioning for Project Runway.
From Sichuan in southern China, to the Deep South, to Southern California, Jia’s “southern” roots are as diverse as her background in accounting, procurement, teaching and loving the spice of life. (Particularly with light-your-mouth-on-fire spicy food.)
Holding a bachelor’s degree in Education and a Master’s in accounting, Jia has been a university lecturer, investment consultant, procurement specialist and an accountant at a large power company. (Jia loves powerful things, too.) Having traveled near and far, these days you’ll find Jia in SoCal’s playground, including Disneyland, Huntington Beach and wherever she can find tasty hot pot restaurants.
Sharing the “Jia Song” name with two famous Chinese actresses of different generations, our Jia is even more talented. She plays guitar and piano, sings, draws, knits and serves as a fashion consultant to her husband and two little girls. The Song women are strong, and even her daughters don’t take any guff from the family’s giant German Shepherd.
Not your average numbers cruncher? Precisely, because nothing is average about Lula 101.
Adan has smarts and is a sponge when there is new information for him to absorb.Always looking for ways to add to his warehouse work, administrative tasks, sales (and even crafty side projects), Adan is Lula’s “McGyver”; constantly finding ways to improvise when tools and resources are scarce.Personifying our motto “Service, Styles & Smiles,” Adan is always grinning, dressing in style and serving Lula’s customers in the best way possible.
William loves streetwear. But it’s almost too much love, because he once waited in line for 15 hours to get some Kanye West “Life of Pablo” merchandise. That’s diehard, but heck … that’s the way we roll at Lula 101. Full commitment to everything we do.
As a college double-major in Diplomacy and International Business in Korea, William had a keen focus on international trade, management and sales. Hmmm, no wonder he’s such a perfect fit for Lula. As our intrepid Sales & Marketing Representative, his knowledge, people skills and fashion expertise are great assets to help build Lula’s business in Korea and beyond.
When he’s not waiting in line for the next big thing, William is absorbing American culture through music, film, travel, books and, oh yeah, food. This is always evident by how quickly he powers through the Lula snack bar, even though he says he just needs the fuel for his workouts. Well, as long as William keeps fueling our business, it’s a fair trade.
