This Thursday, January 4th, UnScripted is joined by Ms. Ying Liu. 

Originally from Beijing, Ms. Liu relocated to the U.S. in 1997. Despite having an engineering degree, her first career was teaching Chinese at Hamilton College. She pursued an MBA in supply chain and finance at Michigan State before joining Apple in 2000, where she played a pivotal role in diverse positions, from materials management to corporate social responsibility.

Among her most notable achievements was establishing Apple’s procurement operations in China in 2004. She was instrumental in expanding Apple’s footprint in the region, laying the groundwork for its dominance in the mobile phone market.

Returning to the U.S. in 2007, Ying shifted focus to product operations and supplier responsibility at Apple. Her expertise covered various manufacturing processes, enriching her industry knowledge.

As a mother, she sought more than her accomplishments at Apple. She ventured into entrepreneurship, starting with travel planning software. Her passion for sustainability was ignited while researching eco-friendly packaging, leading her to witness the environmental impacts of plastic waste firsthand.

This experience led to the creation of Blue Lake Packaging, a company dedicated to providing recyclable plant-fiber-based alternatives to traditionally plastic-dominated industrial packaging solutions and household products. “
