At Viachem, we are proud to be led by Mike Efting, our president and founder. As a graduate of the University of South Carolina, Efting went on to found ChemPoint.com in 1998 while he was an executive at Univar. He later became the founder and CEO of Quadrem, the only global supply-chain eMarketplace for the Mining, Metals and Minerals industry in the world. Quadrem is now part of software giant SAP. In 2006, Efting launched Viachem with some colleagues from Univar and other investors. His success is far reaching and his commitment to innovation and exponential business growth is unparalleled.
With over 35 years of experience as a senior executive in the chemical distribution industry and over two decades as an entrepreneur, Mike Efting is a popular speaker at industry forums and international events like The World Economic Forum in Davo, Switzerland where Efting was a featured speaker for two years in a row. Mike is a resource for professionals around the world. Outside of work, he is a licensed pilot, and he and his wife Lisa love to fly their Cessna 182 around the USA. We are thankful to have such an excellent leader for our Viachem team!
