Boxed is an app-driven, online national bulk retail company. Established in 2013, it was named one of the next “billion dollar startups” by Forbes in 2015. Last year, Boxed was also named Emerging E-retailer of the Year by Internet Retailer.

“Mr. Huang is an outstanding addition to the Union County community, as a successful entrepreneur, a passionate advocate for education, and a stellar example of the powerful impact that immigrants have on our country,” said Freeholder Chairman Bruce H. Bergen.

One of four Boxed fulfillment centers nationwide is a fully automated, 150,000 square foot facility located in Union Township.

Huang has garnered accolades as a co-founder of Boxed, including Goldman Sachs’s list of 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs, the National Retail Federation’s list of People Shaping Retails Future, and Crain’s 40 Under 40.

The son of Taiwanese immigrants, Huang has focused on cultivating a motivated workforce at Boxed. Last year Boxed announced that it would pay all or part of the wedding expenses for full-time employees. Huang has also committed to paying for the college tuition of his employees’ children.

In addition to numerous public appearances and interviews including CNBC, CNN, Yahoo and Forbes, Huang has participated in White House meetings to discuss issues in higher education and the student debt crisis.
