Chang is the second-generation leader of Gamco. Her parents, John Chang and Beatrice Chew, co-founded the company in 1986. She took the helm in 2021. In her time as president, Chang has expanded the company’s engineering team and invested in product performance testing simulation software. She also developed an on-board training course for new sales engineers, ensuring new hires are integrated into the operation effectively and productively in mere weeks.

“To be among so many leaders in the fields of construction, medicine, aviation, social work and other services is humbling,” said Chang. “Gamco has been a beacon of opportunity for my family and the many amazing employees that have helped grow this small business. I am excited to see what our team will accomplish in the coming years as we continue to grow and contribute to Queens.”

In addition to her contributions to Gamco, Chang was recognized for her community contributions. These include donations to various local organizations and the sponsorship of a portion of the Van Wyck Expressway in Queens as part of the NYC Department of Transportation highway cleanup initiative.

The 55 Power Women of Queens honorees were celebrated at a gala on Feb. 29, 2024, at the Terrace on the Park venue in Queens.
