Dr. Chao and Angela Chao are featured in a new book about shipping pioneers – Lori Ann LaRocco’s newest book, Dynasties of the Sea: The Untold Stories of the Postwar Shipping Pioneers. The book hit the shelves last month. Among the leaders of the maritime industry is the story of father-daughter team, Dr. James S.C. Chao and his daughter Angela Chao of Foremost Group.
This is a book for all audiences, not just those interested in the maritime industry. The pages are filled with in-depth and inspiring personal stories of 15 men and women who invested their lives to build a credible international shipping industry.
LaRocco’s book should certainly develop a deep appreciation for the contributions made by these maritime pioneers. Furthermore, it should serve as an inspiration to all entrepreneurs. As she says, “…Even in some of the world’s darkest moments, these leaders had the courage to start companies.”
Dynasties of the Sea reveals the vast network of contributions made by Foremost Group and others, to empowering an economic revival that has touched the lives of billions around the world.
