Nick Zhang - Treasurer
MBA, George Washington University
His return to China in 1991 as Director of New Business Development for Xi'an Janssen (Johnson & Johnson's earliest, largest and most successful venture in China) made him one of the first of the management class now commonly called "returnees" - native-born Chinese who return to the mainland after an education overseas.
Having worked in the senior management of foreign invested pharmaceutical, private equity, and manufacturing businesses, Nick moved into telecommunications when he became the founding CEO of Linktone, the now NASDAQ listed mobile date content provider that pioneered the mobile data sector in Shanghai. Later, his turnaround and subsequent sale of Mobile2Win (a company operating in India and China, with investment from Softbank, Siemens, Temasek and others) to Disney Interactive cemented his track record of success as a manager of Chinas-based start ups and turnarounds, regardless of the sector or the cultural diversity of the workforce and investors.
