It takes more than just one person to envision, strategize, formalize, and create a marketing objective; it takes a great team. If you were to ask us what our best assets in our business is, it would not be our printing presses or equipment, we would reply, “our best assets go home to sleep at night.” Below are the leaders of our team.
Jacob Ung – CEO & Brand Strategist
Jacob considers himself quite the cultural mutt; Chinese ancestry, born in the Philippines, and educated in Canada. One of his strong suits is his desire to learn, not just acedemically but continuously through all aspects of his life; his thirst for knowledge is amazing. If one were to ask why he started Blitzgear, it would be to have the access to learn more about other businesses and industries and help them to be better recognized and become and continue to be leaders in the marketplace.
Jacob was exposed to cars early in his childhood as his family operated several automotive rental agencies. When he learned to drive, cars became an outright passion.

“With so many available services, products and solutions, it is not simply about finding out what is best, but getting what fits the best.”

“You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.”
– Bruce Lee

“I’ll repeat something you might consider tattooing on your forehead: What we fear doing most is usually what we most need to do.”
