Season Group, the global, vertically integrated EMS company, has announced that following a 3-year transition period, Carl Hung has formally taken over the role of CEO of Season Group from his father Patrick. This transition was marked during the company’s recent 40th Anniversary celebrations.

Speaking at the event, Patrick said “Carl embodies the Season mindset and philosophy. He has been working and developing within the business for the past 10 years. Whilst I am proud of all that I have achieved with my colleagues over the past 40 years, the time is now right for Carl to take over responsibility for the running of the company. I know that he is determined to take Season Group to a whole new level of success. And as I step down from the day-to-day operations, I would like to thank all of our customers, suppliers and employees for their support over many years.”

Carl responded by saying “I am humbled by the achievement of my father in building a company that now operates in China, USA, UK, Hong Kong, Canada, Malaysia and Mexico. We started with Cable Assembly and Plastics and have grown to become a key EMS partner for our customers – many of who now entrust us with full electromechanical assembly of their products”.

The Anniversary event also saw the opening of a new on-site crèche for employees’ children at the Dongguan facility, as well as a senior citizens centre for past employees and parents of current employees.

To demonstrate the way in which relationships grow, mature and bear fruit for companies that work together, Season has a tradition of planting a tree with each of its long-term, major customers. Speaking at one of these planting ceremonies at the Anniversary event, Carl added “We are very fortunate to have a set of customers that value the benefits of long-term relationships with their EMS suppliers. This has given us the incentive to make key strategic investments to support them and bring them a ever-wider range of benefits”.
