  • Why did you join Piacente?

    I joined Piacente for three reasons:
    1. Our impressive portfolio of clients. They represent some of China and Asia’s most dynamic and innovative companies.
    2. Our team of dedicated, high-caliber IR professionals. Together, the team has decades of combined experience in the global capital markets and a deep knowledge of Chinese and Asian business environments.
    3. Our seamless, global platform. Piacente’s responsive and agile teams, based in the U.S. and Asia, work together to build clients’ visibility within the international investment community.

  • What aspect of IR do you enjoy most?

    The perfect blend between communications and finance: I enjoy working closely with our clients, learning deeply about their businesses and customizing IR solutions to help them achieve their goals within the financial markets.

  • What is the most important value Piacente provides to its clients?

    Piacente’s smart, fast-moving IR professionals are committed to enabling Chinese and Asian clients’ greater engagement with the global investor community.

  • What part of your background has helped you succeed in IR?

    I draw on my experience in strategic communications, corporate marketing, key account management and international finance when devising solutions for our clients. Having started my career in London’s capital markets, I have over two decades of commercial experience in different sectors, including the legal, technology, consumer and business education industries. In addition, I have lived in Shanghai and Hong Kong since 2002. These distinct experiences enable me to provide nuanced IR advice tailored to our Chinese, Asian and international clients.

  • What do you think makes Piacente a unique place to work?

    Piacente’s ability to work seamlessly across borders, from China to the U.S. and Asia-wide, delivering robust global capital market solutions to our clients.
