He will be responsible for the consultancy’s overall operations and business development in China and will continue his current role as SVP, managing director of luxury practice, Greater China. He has been a key player in Ruder Finn’s luxury practise, advising clients such as Richemont, LVMH, Hermes and L’Oréal.
