Mr. Ngan was born in HK and graduated from USC. He is the Chief Executive Officer of May Cheong Group, Mr. Ngan has been involved in the toy manufacturing and sales industry for more than 20 years, focusing on sales, marketing, manufacturing as well as product and business development.

The May Cheong Group is headquartered in HK and has offices in USA, France and Mainland China where their manufacturing center is.  Since the 1980s when the brand was set up, Maisto has been focusing on producing in-scale die-cast model cars and electronic toys. They are one of only a few toy manufacturers to have their own brand and who design their own products.  Maisto is a major player in the global toy manufacturing market.  In 2006 and 2011, Mr. Ngan was instrumental in orchestrating the acquisition of Bburago, a long-standing Italian brand and the very first scale model car company in history and subsequently also the American brand, Muscle Machines. These acquisitions enabled Maisto to become the preeminent manufacturer in this field and to increase their European market share to 30%.
