Partner

Partners are equity shareholders in InterChina, and have ultimate responsibility for the company.

All our Partners are professional consultants and advisors that have become leaders in their fields. They are experts in specific functions or sectors, well recognized by their peers, and have entrusted relationships with their clients. They naturally serve as role models for younger colleagues working their way upwards.

Importantly, our Partners provide stability through their loyalty to InterChina. All were with the company for more than 5 years upon joining the partnership, and made a commitment to stay with the company for at least an additional 3 years. They define who we are as a company by embodying the corporate culture.

The Partners are responsible for the long-term development of InterChina. More specifically, they develop and shape InterChina's strategy, and watch over the company's human resources and financial performance.

The Strategy Practice and M&A Practice each have a Managing Director. They are responsible for setting and ensuring standards in client work, driving the performance and development of their teams, and organizing resources and recruitment.
