Taubman appoints MD for China
Taubman Asia has appointed Guohua Jean Zhang as MD for China.
Zhang is responsible for overseeing Taubman’s business development, operations and strategic partnerships in China.
He joined the Taubman team in 2011 when the company officially entered China; and has played an instrumental role in the company’s first two Chinese joint venture projects in Xi’an and Zhengzhou.
Zhang has over 13 years of experience in commercial real estate investment, development and operation management, as well as macro-economic analysis, securities and funds and REIT management, accumulated from his years of study and work in North America and the Asian region.
“China is our number one growth market globally, and we are dedicated to building a solid team on the ground to drive our core business of acquiring, developing, leasing and managing a portfolio of high-quality and sustainable retail properties here for long term,” said Taubman Asia president Rene Tremblay.
“Guohua’s local expertise and network, coupled with his extensive experience in real estate and investment, is exactly what we need to drive our expansion strategy in China.”
Taubman says the appointment of a senior management position signifies Taubman Asia’s long-term commitment to the Chinese market.
