Gina Huynh

Operations Specialist

Gina’s knowledge of business dates back to before she was born — her family business consisted of her grandparents owning one of the largest oil companies in Vietnam! It was therefore an easy choice for her to go to college and get degrees in Business Administration from University of Houston and the University of La Verne. Gina has worked for companies such as Weedmaps building out web pages and Dacor, a Samsung company, updating all of their manuals (technology also interests her). At the age of 16, when Gina graduated high school, she took a short break from her regular schedule to travel the world alone and this taught her budgeting skills. Nowadays, with all the knowledge she gain throughout the years, her passion is to help and watch businesses grow by providing support in all ways she can. 

Mike Lanuzo

Finance Manager

Mike joined Suitless due to his interest in process improvement and problem solving and being able to support small businesses. Previously he worked for Vox Media, starting on their collections team, where he was responsible for establishing their collections process. After that he joined their revenue accounting team, and focused on billing and revenue recognition. Mike has a B.S. in Accounting from the University of Maryland, where he also briefly drove an ice cream truck. He is currently in the process of obtaining his CPA, and has passed the Virginia CPA exams. Outside of work, Mike enjoys collecting comic books, trying new Oreo flavors, and hanging out with his pet turtle, James.
