Michael Nguyen is the America’s Leading Community Bank Expert, author, and CEO of BrandMyBank.
He won the lottery TWICE.
The first time was his first airplane trip. He flew from Vietnam to Houston at the age of 17. So his mom and dad, who ran an import/export business, scraped their money together and bought him the plane ticket.
That was a lottery ticket because he was almost certainly the only kid in that town who left Vietnam to live in the USA that entire year.
After he arrived, he had no friends. There was an American named Bill who was struggling in calculus. He sat down and walked Bill through the whole thing and Bill aced the next quiz.
That’s how Michael used calculus to make his first American friend.
The second time he won the lottery was when Michael got his green card from a computer programming job. When writing code, he began using math to optimize processes, reduce waste, improve efficiency, output and seize opportunities.
Michael discovered the Asset-Finding Formula, recently published in Harvard Business Review, which he have since adapted to the banking industry
Michael have discovered that 95% of banks have large gaps in their Deposit customer profile. Michael & his team use this to determine which groups of customers are under-performing and could easily place more money under deposit if they were properly identified and appropriately contacted.
Turns out, after all these years Michael is STILL using his math genius to make new friends.
