Bowe Bell + Howell Scanners Opens First Sales Office in China
In an effort to increase its presence in China, Böwe Bell + Howell Scanners has opened a new sales office in Beijing, China and hired Jiaqing Wang, 37, as its regional sales manager.
"China has been a very successful market for us, and with the completion of the China Compulsory Certification (CCC) for our high-volume Spectrum scanner earlier this year, as well as the introduction of the entry-level Sidekick scanner bundle, China continues to hold tremendous promise for us," said Russell Hunt, president of Böwe Bell + Howell Scanners. "We believe this is the right time to invest in personnel and an office in one of the fastest growing markets in the world."
The Böwe Bell + Howell Scanners sales office will be located in the prestigious Beijing Oriental Plaza, at the hub of Beijing's political and economic district. Böwe Bell + Howell expects to enhance the Beijing office operations by adding local technical support in the near future.
Jiaqing Wang's primary responsibility will be establishing Böwe Bell + Howell Scanners' presence in China. Wang brings to the company more than eight years of marketing and sales management experience, much of it in China's information technology sector.
He most recently served as a sales and marketing director of GSL Technology International Ltd., one of Böwe Bell + Howell Scanners' distribution partners in China. Prior to that he was IT consultant and project leader at INTERCED, Manchester, N.H.
"Jiaqing's technical background combined with his solid marketing and sales experience in China's information technology market, makes him the perfect candidate to spearhead Böwe Bell + Howell Scanners' expansion in China," said Hunt.
Wang earned a master's of business administration from Concordia University, Montreal (Canada), a master's in computer science from Rivier College, Nashua, New Hampshire (United States), and a bachelor's degree from the Civil Aviation Institute of China, Tian Jin.
