Dear AmCham China members,
As a member of the 2021-22 Board of Governors at AmCham China, I am running for my second term and would sincerely ask for your support and vote.
I’m currently President of LinkedIn China, leading the R&D of products and technologies in the China market and overseeing all of LinkedIn’s business in China. Previously, I held technical and executive leadership positions with several Chinese companies in China, and had been a technologist and entrepreneur in Silicon Valley for 15 years.
Two years ago, when I ran for the Board of Governors for the first time, businesses and individuals in China and around the world saw unprecedented challenges amidst the COVID pandemic and escalating geo-political tensions. There was tremendous uncertainty for American businesses in China facing the headwind in globalization and China-US relations. I felt urged to get involved and pledged to advocate and promote for the collective interests of our community in China. In the past two years, I worked with the Board, the AmCham China team, and many of you to build a stronger AmCham business community in China, from recruiting key leadership to policy advocacy, to sharing professional insights to help professionals in AmCham member companies to thrive in their career in China. Lately, I attended the AmCham Human Resources Conference and the Tech and Innovation Summit to share LinkedIn’s findings in the global remote working trend and the potential application of AI technologies in LinkedIn’s future development. LinkedIn China and AmCham have also established a mentor and mentee program to help young professionals adopt essential skills in their early career stage.
Today, those challenges we faced two years remain daunting and have become even more complex. I want to have the opportunity to continue to serve this community, to advocate and promote for the interests of our community and contribute to helping professionals at AmCham member companies thrive in their career in China.
Please support and vote for me!
Sincerely and appreciatively,
Connect with me on LinkedIn at https://www.linkedin.com/in/jianlu/
