Dear AmCham members,
I am Hao Shi from Moody’s Corporation. I am applying for joining Board of Governors of AmCham China and would like to ask for your kind vote and support.
Currently, I serve the role of Managing Director and Country Manager for Moody’s Investors Service in China. Moody’s, as many of you may know, is conventionally a world-leading credit rating company, providing credit risk ratings on sovereignties, companies, and financial institutions. Moody’s has been present in China since 1997 and made great contributions to bridge capital market between China, US and the world, helping businesses and investors to make better decisions. In the last three decades, Moody’s has also been on the forefront of sustainability and ESG trend that is now sweeping across the globe, putting our best efforts to preserve a better future for generations to come.
On personal side, I am a father of three children and happily married for 30 years. My family and I have been, and still, on a true international journey, educated in both China and North America, moved around and lived in US, Canada, Hong Kong, and Beijing. Professionally, I am lucky enough to serve senior management roles in both western corporations such as First Union Bank and Moody’s, and top Chinese state-owned banks like Bank of China and Agricultural Bank of China. The immersion experiences in both western and Chinese businesses and culture granted me unique and profound understanding of differences and commonalities between the two sides, and more importantly a framework and skills to bridge two sides for creating business value and for living a fruitful personal and family life.
We all are in a very different world right now. Covid, geo-political tensions, climate changes, and ever- challenging business environment may have all made us feel stretched to our last inch. However, a moment like this, is when organizations like AmCham can help the most, by bringing members together, sharing ideas large or small, advocating for changes and collaborations, to charter through stormy waters. And I, representing Moody’s China, would love to put forward our best efforts, working with AmCham, to assist members in the community to facilitate sharing and communications, overcome challenges, spark innovations, and identify new opportunities. Besides my own time commitment to AmCham and BOG, I will also bringing other young and energetic Moody’s colleagues to participate in AmCham’s various programs. Together, I would love to work with other senior leaders in AmCham to create an encouraging and nourishing community for young members to grow and prosper.
Thank you all for your consideration and support!
Sincerely Hao Shi
