Lief Organics, a premier formulation and product development innovator and manufacturer of dietary supplements, hosted a group of students and faculty from California State University, Northridge on Wednesday, Feb. 27, at the company’s Valencia headquarters.
Adel Villalobos, Lief Organics founder and CEO, took the group on a tour of Lief’s facilities and provided business insights from the company’s management team.
Villalobos, an alumnus of CSUN, offered the student visit as a mentoring opportunity to inspire and share his experience as an entrepreneur and to discuss career development and potential internship opportunities at Lief with prospective students.
The CSUN attendees included six students, accompanied by Christina Mena, Career & Professional Development Associate and Adrienne Walt, Director of Development, College of Science and Mathematics.
Villalobos commented on the event: “I greatly value my education and the experience I had at CSUN and the role it played in helping me achieve business success. It’s extremely fulfilling to be able to host these students and to provide guidance from Lief’s leadership team that we hope will assist these bright young students in their career development and future growth.”
The day’s itinerary included a tour of Lief Labs where students received a behind-the-scenes look at the company’s supplements manufacturing operations. The visit was rounded out with special presentations from the Lief management team, as well as a luncheon and engaging Q&A session.
Christina Mena, Career & Professional Development Associate at CSUN, said, “I’m so grateful for the opportunity to sit down with Adel today to learn about his passion, the importance of overcoming fear of failure and having a vision for the future. CSUN is 360,000 alumni strong with nearly 40,000 students attending classes at the university. Those are powerful numbers. Adel is a perfect representative of the 360,000 — someone who leads and innovates and whose passion and vision can truly inspire not just the students who attended the Corporate Connect event, but the thousands who attend CSUN.”
