New director appointed in China

We have appointed Tino Chang to the role of director for the technology and manufacturing sectors and business generation in China.

  • Tino Chang hired as director for technology and manufacturing sectors and business generation in China
  • Tino joins with over 18 years of experience in construction and property
  • His appointment comes as our Asia operation records a record turnover of £25.5 million

Tino joins with more than 18 years of experience in the professional consultancy and construction industry, having spent the past 13 years working in China.

Most recently, Tino led the business development operation for YZJ Group, a Chinese company covering the pharmaceutical, property development and construction sectors. Prior to this, he spent 10 years leading our cost management team in Shanghai.

China is still one of the strongest performing economies in the world, despite facing an economic growth slowdown in recent years, and we currently has six offices across the country.

Thanks to his knowledge of the Chinese construction market and extensive business network, Tino’s appointment will allow us to explore new opportunities for business generation in China, particularly in the technology and manufacturing sectors.

Nick Townsend, Managing Director for North East Asia, said: “Tino’s impressive contribution to some major projects in China, such as the Disney theme park and flagship store in Shanghai, Porsche Automotive and Swire Cold Chain Logistics distribution centre, along with his ten years of cost management experience at Turner & Townsend prior to this, means he’s ideal for this role.

“Despite the challenges facing the Chinese economy, we see clients turning to us more and more as they need tighter control of their capital projects. As a result of this our client base is expanding and our team growing. Tino’s expertise will allow us to explore further opportunities for support clients across the hi-tech and manufacturing sectors.”

Tino Chang, director for the technology and manufacturing sectors and business generation in China, added: “I am truly delighted to be returning to Turner & Townsend, a company with over 4,000 employees worldwide and an impeccable reputation. 

“I am confident that I can successfully support the team in China, identifying new business development opportunities and helping foster sustainable growth in the region.”
