Mona Fong

Mona Fong Yat-wah – also known as Lady Shaw – is the second wife of the late Sir Run Run Shaw. She is a prominent film and television producer, with one hundred and thirty film producer credits to her name. Fong’s early career began in the 1950s as a nightclub singer and recording artist, where she was most famous in Hong Kong and Singapore. Lady Shaw held various top-level positions at TVB from between 1988 and 2012. She is now Non-executive Director of the Company. After meeting Sir Run Run, she became a procurement manager of Shaw Brothers in 1969 and deputy chairman in 1999. She is currently chairperson of The Shaw Foundation Hong Kong Limited, The Shaw Prize Foundation Limited and The Sir Run Run Shaw Charitable Trust and a member of the Board of Trustees of Shaw College of The Chinese University of Hong Kong.

She passed away on 22 November, 2017, aged 83.
