Outstanding Contribution to the Asian Mobile Industry

Cher Wang, Chairwoman, CEO and President of HTC, was named the recipient of the award for “Outstanding Contribution to the Asian Mobile Industry” at a ceremony on Tuesday evening. Ms. Wang has been a significant figure in the mobile device industry since she founded VIA Technologies in 1987 and HTC in 1997. Under her leadership, HTC was able to take advantage of the shifts in the device industry caused by the advent of 3G and touch screen UIs, rising to global prominence as a leading device maker. More than two decades later, Ms. Wang has radically refocused HTC to adapt to new market conditions, and in doing so, has ensured HTC’s position as a significant player in the device world, advancing development in areas such as virtual reality, augmented reality, artificial intelligence and blockchain, among others.

Ms. Wang is also a strong voice advocating for women’s roles in the workplace. In 2010, she co-founded the ABAC Women’s Forum to identify capacity-building policy recommendations that enhance opportunities for women in business, and to hold outreach activities within APEC economies. More broadly, Ms. Wang has a deep understanding of the potential of technology to improve the lives of individuals and society in myriad ways, and to that end, she has undertaken significant philanthropic efforts in the worlds of education and science.

The winners of the 2018 AMO Awards were chosen from 180 entries and nominations across seven categories and judged by more than 60 world-leading independent experts, analysts, journalists, academics and, in some cases, mobile operator representatives. Supporting Media Partners for the AMO Awards include AVING News, Technode and Yesky.
