Senior Vice President of Dell, and
President of Dell Greater China
Running for: Governor
Esteemed AmCham China voting members, as President of Dell Technologies in Greater China, I seek your vote for election as Governor to AmCham China’s 2017 Board of Governors.
Dell Technologies has been actively participating in AmCham China's various activities of policy advocacy and government engagement, many of which I have had the honor to be part of. I greatly appreciate the continuous efforts and growing opportunities for AmCham China to further enhance the strategic relationship and facilitate business development between the two most important economies in the world. My focus and contribution on the board will be in the following three areas:
Generating influence – AmCham China has been the most important platform for American business community in China. The increasing significance of the Chinese market for American businesses and the complicating uncertainty in trade and investment relations between China and the United States present challenges and opportunities for AmCham China. I will support AmCham China to develop and maintain effective and influential relationships with the Chinese policy makers and government officials; meanwhile, I will fully leverage my role as the Vice Chairman of China Association of Enterprises with Foreign Investment (CAEFI) to increase AmCham China’s influence among China government stakeholders.
Supporting business – AmCham China has done a great job in advocating for a better business environment in China. Its voice has been heard by the top leadership from both the U.S. and China. Yet with its rich resources and expertise, we can help our headquarters better understand the changing political, regulatory and economic landscape of China, and offer guidance and needed support for our operations in China. We can also create more opportunities for business growth by boosting exchanges and collaborations among members of AmCham China and with their Chinese counterparts.
Being a trusted counsel – My long-term engagement with AmCham China dates back to time period when I was with Schneider Electric and Tellabs. In my current capacity, I am responsible for Dell Technologies’ overall strategy and business in Greater China. I will leverage my in-depth industry experience from the ICT sector to help AmCham China better position in the Era of Digital Transformation.
I appreciate your vote and will do my best to represent the interest of all U.S. businesses, and work towards my goals by serving AmCham China and our member companies with my passion and professionalism.
