Based in Beijing, BDRC China will be led by Siew Wong who has more than 12 years’ experience of B2B business consultancy, most recently as Deputy General Manager of the Beijing office of B2B International. He has worked with corporations in industries including financial services, hospitality, telecoms, manufacturing and pharmaceuticals.
BDRC China will enable the Group to maximize the opportunity presented by the country’s growing economy. There are immediate plans to introduce some of its existing consultancy offerings, including the award-winning product suite developed for the global hotel and hospitality industry. As well as for major hotel chains, adding China to the Group’s Asia Pacific coverage will enable the team to manage pan-Asian projects for the company’s other specialist areas including its Media and Financial and Business practices.
Siew says “I first worked with the BDRC Group over ten years ago, and I am delighted to be joining the family. This is an exciting time in the Chinese market - and for me personally - and I look forward to the opportunities ahead as we enter the year of the Snake.”
Dr Cris Tarrant CEO of the BDRC Group said “BDRC China represents another important development for the Group, giving us direct access to a huge and vibrant marketplace. Our experience of working there so far has shown there is considerable demand for the business consultancy we offer, from both local and international companies. With our Singapore office’s sales exceeding S$1m in its first year we are equally confident about the prospects for Beijing. Siew has unrivalled knowledge of the Chinese market and working closely with Piers Lee, MD in Singapore, I am confident they represent a formidable team for us in Asia.”
