Solomon Chen

Chief Executive Officer

Superior Communications

As the highest-ranking corporate officer within Superior Communications, Solomon is not only responsible for ensuring the company is in alignment with his strategic vision, but for its overall direction as well. Solomon founded Superior in 1991 as the US distribution arm on a Taiwan-based wireless accessory importer. In 1995, he expanded the business to focus more heavily on the OEM market and to provide added value through supply chain services. In 2007, under his direction, Superior became a leader in wireless accessories distribution, employed more than 300 employees and served 6 out of the 7 top US carriers in their accessory needs. Prior to founding Superior, Solomon established and operated Solson Inc., a retail, wholesale, and cellular activation business, which he grew from 5 to 40 employees. A street-smart entrepreneur, Solomon is a hands-on executive who places significant importance on the enjoyment, happiness, and job satisfaction of his talented staff, many of whom are former Superior customers. In May 2008, he lived one of his most memorable moments when he was given the distinct honor of running as torchbearer during the domestic leg of the Olympic Torch Relay in Shanghai, China. And in July 2008, Solomon was the recipient of the Visionary Award from the International Leadership Foundation in Washington, DC, for his wide range of accomplishments as a successful, self-made entrepreneur. He continued to prove himself as a mobile accessory leader by establishing PureGear, a subsidiary brand operated under Superior, in 2010. Through Solomon’s guidance and his ability to nimbly react to the wireless and tech industry, PureGear has grown to become one of the leading mobile accessory brands in the world in only four years, proven by it’s global presence in over 30 countries and counting. On Superior’s 20th anniversary The Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA), a division of the US Department of Commerce, awarded its 2011 National Minority Manufacturer of the Year Award to Superior Communications. The award is presented to minority-owned entrepreneurs and businesses to highlight their outstanding achievements, which, in part, are based on revenue, job creation and economic impact.

“Winning the MBDA National Minority Manufacturer of the Year Award is truly one of Superior’s greatest honors. As a company, we take pride not only in our success as a leading manufacturer in the wireless industry, but in the diversity of our employees who have worked hard to get us here.”
