June Kamiya joined Vournas Coffee Trading in 2017 as a member of our Sales Team, bringing with her a lifelong passion for coffee and a love for the culinary arts. She is an accomplished advertising and sales executive with over 10 years of experience in strategic business development and account management. June currently handles our small to medium size roaster accounts, is the main point-of-contact for new accounts and is involved in the approval of samples at the cupping table.
Throughout her career June has worked with some of the biggest companies in global banking and commerce, including Rakuten, the third largest e-commerce company in the world. She has likewise been instrumental in the strengthening of supply chains, the expansion of major accounts, and was one of the first five sales people at the internet startup, MOGL.com.
June’s love for quality food and coffee is in no small part due to an upbringing in her mother’s sushi restaurant, where for years she passionately worked as a sushi chef throughout her schooling and career. June’s commitment to her family business has helped cement a strong set of values and a focus on quality that continues to be a driver in her personal and professional pursuits.
In her spare time June enjoys spending time with her family, as well as exploring local specialty markets and sourcing ingredients for home cooking projects and social events with friends.
In addition to her professional accolades, June is a fluent Japanese speaker, an avid yoga enthusiast and a spirited coffee drinker. She attended California State University, Northridge where she studied Political Science and Government.
June’s favorite coffee is Guatemala Huehue Dulce Leonarda Estate and she finds inspiration in the words of Mahatma Gandhi who famously stated, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
