Fun facts about our CEO

Meet our CEO: Ong Hang Ping - A pioneer in solar energy

Our CEO, Mr. Ong Hang Ping, 36, isn’t simply some guy. Here is what makes him a pioneer in the field of solar energy and the most suitable CEO for our company. 

He was practically born to be our CEO

Since childhood, Ong had an entrepreneur’s mindset and was aware of the environmental changes happening around him. He knew about the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) and would notice the thermometer in his home slowly increasing as he ages. He graduated from University Malaya with a Bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering in 2009. He has approximately 13 years of experience in the Renewable Energy sector and is a certified member of the Board of Engineers Malaysia since 2011.

He used to work in a Japanese company called Sharp Electronics (Malaysia) and also with GrandPine Capital Sdn Bhd. With his technical and scientific knowledge in solar energy as well as previous job experiences, he is very qualified to manage and oversee our company as well as provide technical advisory and expertise in designing our solar products.

He didn’t always have it easy

Born in a small fishing village in Kuala Kurau (Perak), his parents had to fish and open a Bak Kut Teh store to fund his and his two sisters’ studies. As the youngest but the only male child in the family, he played the role of the “eldest” child. Ong and his sisters graduated successfully, eventually. They were poor but they all made it and are now living their dreams.

He has both Scientific/Technical and Business/Managerial Knowledge in the Solar Energy Sector

From his childhood awareness of environmental issues, his educational background in Electrical Engineering, to his work experience in electronic companies such as Sharp Electronics (Malaysia), Ong has certainly nailed the part of having enough “scientific and technical knowledge” in being able to work in the solar energy sector. He is considered a “pioneer” and was appointed to the Board of Directors since 25 May 2021.

His experience in the corporate world, sales sector and managing ownership of the company also put him on the “throne” today as our CEO. As a member of the Sales team in Sunview many years ago, Ong has great negotiation skills and was involved with many solar projects around the globe, such as in Thailand, The Philippines, Australia, Cambodia and India.

Ong believes in hard work, having faith and chasing one’s dreams. We are thankful to have such a resourceful and intelligent individual leading our team to more growth and success.
