Treasure Garden Promotes Benjamin Ma to VP
Treasure Garden, a manufacturer of outdoor shade umbrellas and accessory products, has announced the promotion of Benjamin Ma to vice president.
Son of the company’s founder and CEO, Oliver Ma, Ben Ma has worked within the management team of Treasure Garden for the past eight years. A graduate of Lake Forest College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business, he will continue to oversee all domestic operations including production, warehousing, planning and purchasing.
“Ben has proven over the past years that he is a trusted point person and capable of taking on greater responsibilities toward driving this company forward,” said Margaret Chang, president, Treasure Garden. “He has been successful in establishing the ecommerce platform as well as his work in our marketing efforts. He is highly respected across the company and I am looking forward to seeing him grow the company further.”
Ma’s responsibilities have included directing all product development for the Treasure Garden line. This has required overseeing the extensive interaction between sales, quality control, the factory in China and the design team in Taiwan. In addition, Ma has also headed Shademaker, the hospitality division, which includes sales and product development responsibilities.
Accomplishments of the newly named vice president include driving the initiatives of the in-house marketing team and casual industry media to promote Treasure Garden and its affiliate brands. In 2015, Ma helped create the shade designer and manufacturer’s ecommerce division, SimplyShade. This division has seen substantial gains as online business has continued to grow and diversify within the casual industry.
“I am deeply honored to take on this new position within a company that I have been proud to be associated with my entire life,” said Ma. “This role will allow me to work closely with our highly experienced and successful teams of sales and production individuals as we work together to grow the Treasure Garden and related brands.”
