Viben embodies the fulfillment of the American Dream. In many ways, Viben?s success exemplifies the pioneering, enterprising spirit that is the foundation of the American and San Franciscan society. Starting the company from scratch, Richard Hsieh applied his Pacific Basin knowledge and entrepreneurial skills to create a company that is efficient, focused, and true to its cultural roots. A devoted husband and father who has always promoted a family-like, responsible environment at his company, Hsieh named Viben after his three children Vivian, Vincent and Ben.
Since the beginning, Hsieh recognized the cultural diversity, progressive spirit and good climate of San Francisco and selected the city to be the firm?s headquarters. As a leading promoter of trade between Asia and the western world, Viben is proud to have contributed to the cultural history and financial prosperity of the San Francisco area.
In 30 years, Viben has grown from a one-person operation into a world renowned company.
