Greater China Unit is continuing its growth. We are achieving another record growth for the first quarter of 2008. Thank you for your great performance.
2008 is the second year of the Greater China Growth Strategy. You will see further changes and additions in many areas. And we hope each of you can find ways to contribute to such changes. Masa plans to have hearing sessions with each of you as he did last year.
We hope working together to continue to upgrade our presence and capabilities in China, while maintaining our good tradition of family culture.
Thank you again for your contributions and continued dedication.

《汽车新闻》”Chinese Pitch Innovation not just Price“一文引用了科尔尼副总裁孙健的评述。孙总认为：定位创新对中国汽车业发展意义重大。如果能在思想观念上能有所突破，必然能迅速缩小与西方汽车制造商在标准引擎以及其他技术领域的差距。

I joined Kearney’s HK Office in late March after working at Merck for nearly six years, with three years at its headquarter in New Jersey and following three years in its regional office in HK. While at Merck, my primary focus is on post-merger integration, organization effectiveness, and corporate development. I had a Bachelor’s degree in Management from Peking University and had my post-graduate study at Carlson School of Management in University of Minnesota. I am also a CFA charterholder. In my spare time, I enjoy Chinese painting, reading interesting books, jogging in a park, traveling to places of interests, and out-door activities such as hiking and skiing.
Hi Everyone! My name is Lorenz, 刘睿, 25, from Vienna, Austria. I joined the BJO beginning of march as a Business Analyst. I have a Master’s degree in Finance, Accounting and Controlling from the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland, and spent 2 years studying Mandarin in Beijing. I further engaged in the CFA designation, currently studying for Level 2. To balance out the hard working
hours, I very much enjoy playing Tennis, Golf or going to the Gym. Being around friends, eating lots of good food, and relaxing with a
good book, brings further the much needed change. Sometimes my adventurous second personality takes over and I enjoy “sports”
like skydiving and bungee jumping (highest 216 meters).
I am very glad and proud to be part of the A.T. Kearney team, especially in this fascinating country. I am looking forward to work with all of you.
After more than ten years in the US, I finally returned to China and jointed ATK this February. It has been a wonderful while challenging process to re-adapt myself. After my college, I went aboard and continued to get my PhD in Aerospace Engineering and, later on, my MBA. (I probably can challenge Bernhard in terms of the time stayed in school.) Over the last couple of years, I first worked for EDS in its PLM division serving aerospace and automobile clients and later for Accenture in its Strategy Consulting Service Line focusing on Communications and High-Tech. I
also had a brief stint of building a not-so successful start-up with some
friends. Other than work, I enjoy reading, gourmet food and … long sleep in the weekends.
Prior to joining A.T. Kearney, Nathan Guo worked as an Oracle retail business consultant, focus on Merchandise Management, Price management and Store Operation. He also worked as a business Analyst in Wal-Mart Global Procurement supporting the global Hardline sourcing operation of Wal-Mart. He speaks Chinese Mandarin and English fluently and can conduct basic conversation in Spanish and Dutch. He enjoys travelling, badminton, and racquetball.
Born in Hunan province, south part of China, I would like to summarizemy past couple years of experience with 2 schools, 3 cities, and
4 jobs. I had been studied several years ago in University of Hunan, which located in the beautiful mountain and with many traditional and historical buildings. I was just graduated from Cheung Kong graduate school of business. So far, I have been lived in 3 cities. Changsha, the capital of Hunan province, is the place I grew up. Then, I went to Beijing and lived there for 5 years. Now, I am in Shanghai, and really enjoy the life here.
The last job I worked for is my MBA, and I always took it as a full time job. Before MBA, I had worked for two companies, Thomson and General Electric. In the new year of Olympic, I joined ATK PS China team.
Pleased to join the great team here to share experience and acquire knowledge. And before ATKPS, I’ve worked in the automotive and electronics/electrical industries for more than 8 years, and dedicated most of the time to the cost effectiveness issues.
I like travel and can enjoy the differences. Please be together to experience the consultant life which might can provide the difference consistently.
Specialized in sourcing area, I have been working in Consulting industry for over 2 years. During my spare time, I would like to play sport games with my friends. I am looking forward to good cooperation with you in the future.
o settle down in Shanghai after staying in Japan for 10 years, I got my first project assignment with A.T. Kearney - work with Japan office to help a Japanese client to build new business model!
Feb 12, after 3 hours flight, I saw a limousine bus staff bowing in front of me, a familiar scene but I would never see in anywhere else than Japan, I knew I was back.
The air was clear and fresh. Maybe this winter was too cold in Shanghai, walking on the street in Tokyo, I even felt warm like spring. I treated myself a good Japanese dinner, without knowing my hard is coming soon…
Although I somehow expected hard work in Japan, I was not well prepared to sleep at 3 everyday. Only after one day, I figured out there are only 5 female consultants among 80 plus consultants in Tokyo office. My team members all seemed impressed when I told them I only worked with ladies for the previous 2 proposals.
I believe most of you would agree team work is part of consulting life, but team work might count and mean more here.
You are part of the team.
All the information is shared in the team. Almost every email is copied to all, meetings are attended by all, lunches and dinners with all, every piece of work is done by all.
And team is part of your life.
2 days’ later came Valentine’s Day. This event is celebrated in an interesting manner on two different dates in Japan. On February 14, female present gifts to their boyfriends or any man close to them. The favor is returned to ladies on the White Day celebrated on March 14. Since the Valentines’ Day is a team event and I am the only female in the whole team, I decided to buy a box of chocolate to my team. I was very satisfied because I heard our partner reminding the team to return me something on White Day, when enjoying the chocolate..
Happy hour – at Tokyo office Annual dinner
As a team, you work hard, also play hard
As part of the team building, a gorgeous kick-off dinner is a must-have event in Japan. I am sure there will be a “job well done” dinner at the end of project which I hope I can make to attend.
And during my stay, I was luckily invited to office wide annual dinner. And the theme is “WA (和)”, which means harmony. Team spirit is everywhere.
