CCG Investor Relations Bolsters China Team with New Hires
LOS ANGELES and BEIJING, China - June 24, 2008 CCG Investor Relations, a leading global investor relations and strategic communications agency, today announced several new hires in China to enhance the level of the company's client services in response to the continued growth of its client base in China, the US, Europe, Vietnam and Israel. The new staff members run the gamut from executives to financial analysts and graphic designers.
Richard Wang, who previously served in several high-level positions in the financial sector in the U.S. and China, has joined CCG Elite as managing director of the Beijing office. Wang has an M.B.A. in finance from the University of Southern California as well as an M.S. in economics from the Graduate School of People's Bank of China. A veteran in finance and investment, Wang holds a U.S. CFA and CPA, and completed his undergraduate work at Tsinghua University. Prior to joining CCG, Wang was vice president of Financial Planning Standards Council of China; deputy manager, finance at CITIC Ka Wah Bank; and deputy manager, treasury at CITIC Industrial Bank.
"We are very pleased to have Richard Wang heading up CCG's Beijing office and believe that he will make an important contribution to expanding our presence in China," said Crocker Coulson, president of CCG Investor Relations. "His appointment underscores CCG's commitment to building a team of high-level investor relations consultants who can provide assistance to public and private companies from the region seeking to access the global capital markets."
The financial writing department gets a boost with the addition of Jack Chen, who will work in the agency's Shanghai office as a financial analyst. Jack previously served as an equity analyst for Kim Eng Securities Shanghai research office, and has earned an M.B.A in finance from Assumption University (Bangkok).
Also joining the CCG Beijing office are John Chen as graphic designer and Jennifer Ji as accounting associate.
The addition of new staff continues a growth strategy that includes a recent office opening in Shenzhen, China and a joint venture agreement in Frankfurt, Germany - all of which strengthen CCG's position as one of the world's leading investor relations agencies providing superior client services and satisfaction.
"We are delighted to have Richard, John, Jennifer and Jack join the growing CCG China-based team," said Bill Coffin, CEO of CCG Investor Relations. "Their education, experience and passion for our profession will enormously benefit our clients and our agency."
