Lori Ann LaRocco has written a riveting account of the men and women who have built the international shipping industry. Among the featured maritime pioneers is Founder and Honorary Chairman of Foremost Group, Dr. James S.C. Chao and his daughter, Angela Chao, currently Chair and CEO of Foremost Group.
LaRocco delves deeply into the personal journeys of the Chao family and others who remained steadfast in their life mission in spite of the challenges of building a new, global industry that would impact every facet of life across the planet.
The book gives readers an appreciation for the extent of the shipping industry’s reach in the world. As LaRocco notes, international shipping companies do more than move goods around. By building a strong maritime industry, these giants played a critical role in improving world economies.
Dynasties of the Sea gives readers a glimpse into the grit and personal sacrifices that these leaders made to achieve what we take for granted today.
