14 Aug Happy Birthday Dr David Hon!
DAHON Founder and CEO Turns 75
Many happy returns to the inventor of the DAHON folding bike! Since making a career jump from the world of physics, Dr David Hon has been a champion of green, urban mobility now for four decades (browse the DAHON timeline and read more about Dr Hon here) and recently celebrated his 75th birthday!
In honor of the occasion, staff from the DAHON offices and factory in Shenzhen, as well as some local friends and bicycle club members, gathered in Dongguan in Guangdong for a lively celebration. Special guests included Secretary General of the Guangdong Cycle Association, Mr Ma Zhongchao, Secretary General of the Shenzhen Cycle Association, Ms Wang Yiping, and Mr Harley Seyedin, President of The American Chamber of Commerce in South China. Mr Ma presented Dr Hon with an award for Distinguished Contribution for his work over the years.
The whole event was broadcast via live-streaming app Huajiao, (just one of many such apps that are booming in mobile savvy China) attracting more than 10,000 viewers and turning the party into a China-wide event for DAHON fans across the country.
