Dr. Trung Dung:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trung_Dung
During the Fall of Saigon, his father, a devout anti-communist, was a Lieutenant in the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN). He chose to remain and protect his family and defend South Vietnam from the invading North Vietnamese Army and their Viet Cong agents.
Dung's father was captured and sent to a re-education camp. Dung helped his mother and siblings survive, and he grew to despise the practices of the Communist government.
Upon his father's release, the family secretly immigrated to the United States.
He is currently the chief executive officer of Fogbreak Software, the company he founded. Fogbreak creates enterprise business applications to optimize supply chain flexibility and liability. Fogbreak is well-funded by a group of blue-chip investors: Matrix Partners, Greylock, and Sigma Partners.
Prior to founding Fogbreak, Dung founded and ran OnDisplay, Inc. The company was a pioneer in the development of business-to-business application integration technology. Mr. Dung grew OnDisplay from a product concept to an enterprise software company that was one of the 10 most successful IPOs in 1999 and was ultimately acquired by Vignette Corporation in 2000 for $1.8 billion.
Prior to founding OnDisplay, Dung was a senior engineer at Open Market, the first developer of Internet commerce software.
Dung has completed postgraduate work in Computer Science at Boston University and holds bachelor degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Massachusetts.
In May 2004, Trung Dung was awarded a Golden Torch Award, by the Vietnamese American National Gala in Washington D.C..Julie Nguyen Brown:http://vangusa.com/m_facts.php
