Who is she?

President of Gree Electric Appliances Inc

What she has achieved?

Dong's story lets you know that age has nothing to do with being a successful woman. She is the representative Chinese businesswoman who succeeded and broke the glass ceiling through industrious work. In 1990, she joined Gree when she was 36 years old and started her career from doing sales work. She became Gree's president in 2012. Her achievements helped China's home appliances industry to develop in an environmentally-friendly way. As a widow who lost her husband when her son was 2 years old, single mother Dong brought up their son and still fights in the competitive market.
