Comrise China announces new President, Robert Fonow

Comrise Board of Directors announced this morning our new Comrise China President. We are happy to have Robert on board and have high hopes for him. He comes from a rather experienced background: Fonow serves on the board of three other Chinese companies and is a highly experienced international turnaround manager, executive troubleshooter and government affairs expert in manufacturing and services. Fonow graduated from The London School of Economics and then the University of Wales, following service in the US Air Force. Over the course of his career, Fonow has published several monographs and numerous articles on international telecommunications and management troubleshooting.

Working with Liana Pan, the company’s General Manager, Robert will oversee the organization’s efforts to rapidly expand in the growing China market, as Comrise plans to open five additional offices in China within the next two years.

On behalf of the Board of Directors for Comrise China, Sincia Liu said, “Bob was nominated and selected based on his track record and background in executive management and leadership with Global companies on their development and expansion efforts in the Asia Pacific regions. He will be able lead and guide the team to deliver best in class service in talent planning, acquisition, and management for our Multinational and local clients in China. We also expect closer collaborations between our US and China offices to enrich our customers’ experiences on both shores.”

Regarding his new position, Rob said, “The Human Resources sector in China continues to grow rapidly and this will provide Comrise with a unique opportunity to integrate operations into an organization with global reach and success. I’m impressed by the energy and capability of Comrise China staff, and look forward to helping Comrise continue its growth into a leading international HR and consulting firm in China and Asia – beginning right now!”

We love Robert's high spirits as it fits perfectly with the Comrise environment.

Welcome to the team Robert, we are glad to have you on board!
