He started working at the company in the early 1960s, and remained with the company up until his retirement in 1990. At the time of his retirement, Dr. Wong was the Director of International Technologies for the Chemical and Plastics Group of the company. He had previously worked in roles of Director of Economics and Operations Analysis, Chief Economist, Supervisor of Planning and Economics, Principal Planning Engineer, and Manager of Long Range Planning and Economics.
