Career

Gary Wang’s business career began in 1992 as Secretary and Translator for a Sino-Spanish joint venture based in Huizhou, Guangdong Province, where he worked for two and half years very closely with the General Manager and key board members of the JV, learning his first lessons about business. He then joined Sony China in Guangzhou as Marketing Representative responsible for building the distribution network for Sony Recording Media & Energy products in the South and West China. 

With nearly 8 years with the company in both Guangzhou and Shanghai, he rose in the ranks and became the first National Account Sales Manager for Sony Consumer Electronics Division of Sony China, then a one billion business unit with sales from the retail chains such as Guomei, Suning, Yongle, Carrefour, Wal-Mart, Metro and Sam’s Club. Today Sony China’s sales from this channel have reached six billion.

He then joined DuPont China as the Greater China Sales Manager for Imaging Technologies based in Shanghai. During three and a half years in that position, he doubled the business, growing DuPont’s market share from 56% to 80%, and making Greater China the biggest market in Asia Pacific in terms of revenue and ATOI (revenue was 25% more than Japan & Korea combined, the second biggest sub region in Asia Pacific for the business). 

After a brief stint with Dell China as the Senior Sales Manager for the International Group, Gary joined Learn•Succeed•Lead in early 2007 as Senior Consultant developing corporate training programs, consulting companies on Learning & Development strategies and delivering coaching and training programs.

Education

Driven, passionate and strongly committed, Gary takes great pride in his self-made background. The fact that he had to quit senior high school only after the first semester did not stop him from dreaming big. In the following seven years, he completed high school, college, and graduate studies in English language by himself while working as a highly effective high-school English teacher for 4 years. Gary speaks fluent Chinese, English, Cantonese and the Shanghai dialect.
