Cher Wang would rather not be pigeonholed as a billionaire (which she is). She’d rather talk about the other thing she is: one of technology’s most powerful executives, certainly the most influential woman in wireless. Sure, she and her husband, Wenchi Chen, are worth $6.8 billion as of our last count, making them the wealthiest couple in Taiwan. Her late father was a billionaire, too. When we first tried to sit down with Wang, the chairman and cofounder of the Taiwan mobile giant HTC, for a profile for the FORBES billionaires issue, she demurred. Too much focus on money and not enough on business. So our first face-to-face meeting with Wang, in July, more than six months in the planning, was all business."
