Campaign Statement

My history with AmCham traced back to early 2000 when I worked for a US company – Rockwell Automation as a junior staff. I have seen remain as very active member of AmCham for the past 18 years. I am so blessed that with all the great learning from experienced business leaders serving at AmCham and my volunteer work at AmCham, I have grown up and now lead Cummins China Strategy, Marketing Intelligence, Government Affairs and Corporate Responsibility today. I served as Governor on AmCham Board since 2013-2016 and was Vice Chair and Chair for Chinese Government Affairs Committee (CGAC) at AmCham for 6 years.

China and US are two inter-dependent partners in the world and unfortunately, the situation of these two largest economies is very flux and complicated situation, with shifting priorities and we need to ensure that AmCham has strategy and initiatives to develop a win-win collaboration that is mutually beneficial both politically and business wise. My dedicated responsibilities in leading strategy will surely bring additional value to AmCham and its member companies.

As a Chinese working in US companies for the past 19 years leading Government Affairs, Business Development and Strategy for three different US companies allowed me to further sharpen my business acumen, elevate strategic thinking and planning as well as enhance my execution. My understanding of the membership companies pain points will allow me to better represent and advocate for the common interests on behalf. I also hope my industrial background, diverse while well integrated function background and a Chinese female identity will bring substantive diversity to the Board.

Thank you for your support to my success in being elected to join the Board in 2019. I have been working vigorously on advocating for member companies on their business interests, challenges facing through proactive communication with government. I will continue doing the same and better in 2019 if I get elected.

I would appreciate your vote and look forward to working with you.
