Gung Ho’s Lucy wins WOW Award!
On Wednesday night – International Women’s Day – our CFO, assistant Lao Ban and co-founder of Lush, Pyro Pizza and Gung Ho! Pizza Lucy Hu was the proud recipient of the 2017 WOW Business award! A lot of you know our other founders John and Jade but not many people know Lucy. Jade’s business partner since 2003, Lucy is the spiritual heart of our team and our biggest cheerleader, and recently has been moving into a more visible leadership role. In her words:
“Until know I have been happy to stay behind the scenes, but last year in particular I have been very proud to take a more forward role in the company. Last year we opened our largest store, we launched new initiatives such as the Women of Gung Ho, and achieved a huge milestone in our Green Program with our successful B Corporation accreditation, only the third company in China to do so. I am now also a member of Beijing’s Chinese Entrepreneur’s Organization (EO).
I am proud that I have been able to first learn, and now to teach and mentor my own team as well as others in my EO forum, as well as take a hand in steering the company as we expand into a true China based company.”
Congratulations Lucy! We’re proud of you!
