Gary Ngan

To be the chief financial officer of one of China’s most popular apps at only 33 is a pretty remarkable feat. To have participated in the IPOs of three Macau casinos, to have launched a Guangzhou video-game company on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, and to have been head of Hong Kong and China internet research at UBS before that is pretty outstanding.

But in the case of Gary, it’s just a normal day on the job(s). The Hong Kong-born entrepreneur is the definition of a go-getter: driven, ambitious and very, very successful in everything he does. That popular app we mentioned, Meitu—an image-enhancing app—boasts 450 million users per month. Perhaps “successful” is an understatement here.
