Olympus Mons
Profiles on Prominence: WangTech, Inc.
By: Cledwyn Suryasumantri

Originally a pre-Solar Union Earth-based multinational biotech firm, WangTech rapidly expanded during the Pre-Unification Wars, branching out into medical supplies, pharmaceuticals, medical implants, and robotics to take advantage of market demand. Near the end of the wars, WangTech began to shift resources to weapons production, but the cessation of hostilities dealt WangTech a serious financial blow, one from which it would not fully recover until the discovery of Transit Gate technology.

In a desperate bid for survival, WangTech put its very existence on the line to become one of the first - if relatively minor - corporate financial backers for the Transit Gate project. The combination of good publicity generated by the excitement for this new technology (certainly helped by an aggressive PR campaign) and the spike in demand for labor frames brought the faltering megacorp back to strong financial and political footing.

Pressing this advantage with fervor - a fervor some analysts of the time attributed to the deteriorating health of then-President and CEO Xavier Wang - WangTech scattered its seeds across human space: with every new gate put into operation, WangTech opened a logistics and brokering office aboard; for every sufficiently-profitable new colony world, WangTech erected a regional HQ. It's uncertain if the practice continues to the present day, as WangTech is a privately-held company, and public records from the colonies have been unreliable since the beginning of the Ijad invasion.

WangTech has been headquartered right here on Mars since the tragic loss of its original HQ on Earth; a freak, localized earthquake dropped the entire campus - over 10,000 employees, staffers, and visitors, including then-President and CEO Wang - into a massive sinkhole, burying everyone alive. WangTech's emergency response team was first on-site, confirming zero survivors. Over the course of the following year, WangTech Construction erected a memorial museum to President Wang and the other victims on the site of the former HQ. The memorial stands to this day; by tradition, new CEOs and regional directors make a pilgrimage each solar year to pay their respects and meditate upon the WangTech vision.

While WangTech is headquartered on Mars, the realities of a multi-system corporation require a high degree of regional autonomy; regional directors wield near-absolute authority over their domains, with one exception: since the beginning of the Ijad invasion, WangTech has enforced a company-wide policy of non-intervention, limiting their operations in Ijad- and rebel-contested space to humanitarian aid. Despite firm adherence to this policy within the company, WangTech representatives admitted that, due to unscrupulous, unaffiliated opportunists and the chaos of war, a trickle of WangTech military hardware has found its way into rebel and alien hands. WangTech has assured Olympus Mons that it is committed to eradicating this breach; WangTech's IP Enforcement Division has ramped up recruitment by over 200% in the past 6 months.

What does the future hold for WangTech? Company Spokesperson Stephanie Belasco had this to say: "At WangTech, we believe in the transformative power of human ingenuity through science and technology. We will continue serving humanity as we have throughout our history: improving your daily lives, equipping the brave men and women protecting your way of life, and bringing humanity inexorably into the future."

I would like to apply for a job at WangTech. Just who would I contact?
Here is my (in-character) resume. I am interested in having an excuse to field the very best in arms, and also get a "real job", because my mom said that my friends cannot play "Frames and Freedom" in the basement anymore, despite my insistence that we will revolutionize tactics in the frame industry. At any rate, I already got my friends to join up infantry groups, and have constructed my own frame! Please respond, Stephano Jawbsawn.(Returns to being Steve Jobson) Good day, and thanks for letting me clear my system.
