After my graduation with a Ph.D. in EE from Stanford in 1993, I worked at Xerox Palo Alto Research Center for 4 years as a project manager and research scientist, developing business plans and productization for PARC’s technologies. Like many Silicon Valley’s high-tech company founders, entrepreneurship is in my vein and nothing drives me more than building great technology and business to revolutionize the way people live and work. From ground up, I have built the largest mobile payment platform and service with over 10 banks with nationwide full carrier coverage in China. I have also built partnerships with large clients such as Tencent, Shanda, Sinopec, Tom.com, Sohu, and major banks in China to provide integrated mobile payment, mobile loyalty program, mCommerce and mobile marketing platform and services.
I would very much like to bring my 17 years of overall high-tech business knowledge, leadership and cross-culture management experience in US and China, as well as my industries experience and client relationships in mobile, entertainment, banking and content spaces, to a large business platform. Moreover, I have over 13 years of hands-on start-up business experience in China with deep understanding of China’s unique market, business and personnel environment.
I enjoy workingon strategic partner-facing business projects that develop solutions for and build enduring relationships with company’s largest and most important partners.
One of my strengths is to think strategically and globally about entire industries and help company to define business and operational initiatives that contribute to the company's growth. I love to build and lead teams that thrive in deconstructing and re-creating businesses to meet changing strategic and operational needs, enable innovation, establish more efficient business practices, and help the company continue to achieve its vast potential. My interest would be on projects developing and implementing next-generation entertainment, advertising or commerce products, defining strategies to optimize technology and operations, and establishing business initiatives for emerging markets. My objectives are to create concrete impact on revenue, cost and operational efficiency, and to create distinctive partnership value.
I am able to provide strong leadership, decision-making frameworks, analytic guidance and business judgment at all stages of the product lifecycle, and to take ideas and transform them into new, world-shaping technologies that company can then take to market.
My deep understanding of the China market gives me competence in developing and executing market-entry plans, defining business model and pricing strategies for new products. I am fluent in public, media, and government relations. I am used to build and manage high-performing teams and multiple competing projects at the same time. I am capable to lead multiple cross-functional, global teams to get work done.
My education and working experience in the Silicon Valley and US public companies allows me to communicate findings, initiatives and plans well to senior international board and management,or to the broader corporate organization.
I am confident that I can contribute with great value.
