Yao

Managing Partner, China

Based in Shanghai, China, Jack has experience working with international clients across Europe, the US, Africa, and Latin America, designing and implementing supply chain operating models across a variety of industries.

Jack’s clients have included companies from the automotive, electronics, consumer packaged goods and food industries. A recent focus for him has been on supporting Chinese-based companies to adapt their business models to challenge head-on the adversity and fall-out from US-China trade disputes.

“Consulting is a profession that is both demanding and rewarding. For people who are willing to make the investment and want to learn how to hold their own when interacting with different people, cultures, and problems, MPK will be a great place. Even after so many years working with different consulting firms, I am still learning.”

Besides his 15 years of experience consulting with clients, Jack has previously worked for multi-national manufacturing organizations in both the automotive and electronics industries, where he gained significant management experience in addition to in-depth involvement in the development of international chains incorporating developing markets in established western markets.

Jack studied Engineering at the Shanghai Institute of Technology where he achieved his BSc and obtained his MBA at the university of Ballarat in China. Jack is fluent in both English and his native Chinese.
