His close connection to Germany dates back to his student days. In the late 1990s he studied communications engineering in Bremen.
As for the future, he sees the main task in advancing corporate growth. "Our customers appreciate the presence of an independent partner directly in China", says Timo Ren. "Product quality 'Made in Germany', in-country consulting know-how and local order processing are a good combination."
