Eric Yuan, CEO of a privately held communications company, has recently been rated “America’s Favourite CEO”, based on employee approval ratings submitted via a careers website. Mr. Yuan scored an impressive 99% approval rating by his employees, making him the highest ranked CEO on the list.

Setbacks And Successes

Inspirationally, Mr Yuan has overcome many hurdles and obstacles in order to achieve his coveted position today.

Mr. Yuan was reportedly denied a US visa nine times over the course of 2 years, before eventually entering the US from China in the 1990s. It is reported that when he entered the US, he was unable to speak English. However, he was fluent in software coding, eager to be successful and willing to work hard.

Mr. Yuan eventually secured a position at a communications company, where he grew the business from a modest team of 10 engineers to over 800 engineers, worldwide. He rose to the position of Corporate Vice President of Engineering, before leaving to form his own company.

His current company, headquartered in California, employs approximately 1200 employees across six offices globally, including the US, UK and Australia.

Mr Yuan’s story demonstrates that the American Dream can become a reality, when a well-judged, properly executed visa application is combined with determination, persistence and hard work. He is an inspiration to us all.
