Ge WANG 王戈
President & Creative Director
As the Creative Director of ESQ, I am constantly looking to provide more unique products for my clientele. ESQ will be adding more lifestyle inspired pieces in 2016.
What was your first job, and how did it shape your life?
I worked in a smoothie shop at my local gym as a high school junior and quickly learned that money does not grow on trees. That job is still a reminder to this day that nothing in this world is free, and that everything must be earned.
What keeps you awake at night?
A lot of things keep me up, but definitely the majority of it is work. Not only am I speaking to persons in China, but also being an entrepreneur means work is never over.
When do you feel most free?
I enjoy my free time when I am able to work out before heading to the office. It’s nice not having a phone and any distractions.
What was the last present you gave someone?
I gave my current girlfriend of 4 years a quick vacation to Jamaica. Next present will be considerably smaller (but more meaningful).
What was the last present you received?
I received a very nice watch from a dear friend.
What’s your view on money?
Money is hard. And money cannot make you happy. But we all want it.
What is an extraordinary place you have recently traveled to?
My childhood home in Beijing. The feelings I get cannot be put into words.
