Campaign Statement

Fellow AmCham China Members,

I am running for the 2020 AmCham Board of Governors and would like to ask for your support and your vote.

Technology, innovation, and collaboration are foundational cornerstones in the US-China relationship across industries. Be it AI, Autonomous Vehicles, 5G, or other technologies, the world is more connected than ever. Yet, the Trade Dispute has introduced a challenging operating environment, with technology as a key topic.

With your vote, I aim to help increase the visibility of and thought leadership on these topics at the AmCham Board level to help assist our member companies and fellow travelers, including both US and PRC governments, navigate this complex time.

Currently, I am Vice President and Director of Intel’s China Corporate Strategy Office – in short, my team and I help define and drive Intel’s corporate and product strategies, and run an internal innovation accelerator. I started as a software developer in two Silicon Valley startups, then got my MBA and jumped into the corporate world where I have built strategy, sales, and staff experiences.

Outside of Intel, I am on the Board of Montage Technologies, a Shanghai STAR market listed company, a volunteer mentor at Tsinghua University’s x-labs accelerator, and an active private startup investor and advisor. With AmCham, I am a founding supporter of the Technology and Innovation initiative, work closely with the leadership team on external engagements, and am a speaker at internal events.

If elected, I aim to bring my experience crossing technology plus business, Fortune 50 plus startups, software plus hardware, and US plus China to the benefit of all AmCham members. I believe in humility and in listening; my door is always open. Let’s together help AmCham continue its ascension as the most impactful Chamber in China.

Thank you for your consideration and your support.
