The Innovative Vision of Cher Wang

 

Cher_WangInnovation is the driving influence of HTC. It inspires everything we do, and it starts at the very top. CNBC recently published a list of the “First 25” most influential leaders since 1989, and our very own founder and co-chair, Cher Wang, made the noteworthy list.

Seeing Cher’s name on the list was more of an affirmation to us than a surprise. Cher’s visionary talents have guided and influenced our company from inception as an OEM manufacturer to a branded technology corporation. Her unique, creative approach to the high-tech world continues to pioneer the mobile industry.

“Imagine not only smartphone,” Cher recently discussed during an internal team meeting, “but a truly smart life enabled by ubiquitous intelligence – smart home, smart city, smart world and smart universe. We are only scratching the surface of mobile technology right now and HTC is in a really exciting place.”

CNBC’s list is comprised of what they title “Rebels, Leaders, and Icons.” The First 25 is a list of the men and women who have “had the most transformative effect on commerce, finance, markets, human behavior and global culture over the past 25 years.” From co-founding a global high-tech company to her worldwide philanthropic work, Cher is the textbook definition of the “First 25.”

“Humility comes before honor,” Cher says. “We need to stay grounded, humble ourselves and realize that we don’t know everything. Observe, listen, and never stop learning.”

Cher’s open-minded approach to innovation has guided the way for multiple design awards, numerous first-in-class innovations, and unprecedented customer satisfaction here at HTC. She directly inspires our entire company to push boundaries, embrace change, and take risks. Can you imagine what changes the next 25 years will bring?
