Laboratory tools developer H.E.L Group has appointed Qing (Steven) Chen as China General Manager (GM). Steven will support the company’s transition to a wholly foreign-owned entity (WFOE) in China, as the Company expands its sales, marketing and support efforts in the region.
With over 20 years’ experience in senior management, including roles in the Chinese divisions of Bruker Optics and more recently Nanophoton Corporation, Steven also held the position of Greater China President during a 10-year tenure with PerkinElmer, overseeing business strategy implementation and P&L responsibility for the area.
Louise Madden, CEO of H.E.L Group commented: “China is one of the world’s most vibrant and exciting markets for chemistry and biotechnology with a strong drive for innovation. The setting up of a legally owned entity in China reflects our long-term commitment to the region and our intent on building a stronger and more effective presence there. We are delighted to welcome Steven to the team as we continue on a journey of global growth and operational excellence – Steven’s experience and expertise will be key to this.”
Steven Chen, H.E.L’s General Manager China, added: “I’m very proud of becoming a member of this great team. I look forward to working with colleagues to build a stronger team in China with the same commitment to our customers and commercial success. That will come from the sharing of ideas and best practice around the team. Our portfolio of safety products is particularly well received in China and we will continue to ensure we maintain the highest levels of regulatory adherence for our own internal processes and those of our customers.”
