Shanghai - GroupM China has appointed Jin Wanjun as managing partner for GroupM Trading to oversee the group's trading strategies and operations in China.
Jin (pictured) joined GroupM two years ago to head its strategic investments arm and was appointed head of GroupM's print trading unit in August last year. He will report to Bessie Lee, CEO for GroupM China.
"Wanjun's extensive management experience in television and print has been particularly helpful in our business operations and growth since his arrival", Lee said.
Jin has over 20 years of experience in the media industry having started his career at the Shanghai Municipal Administration of Radio and TV. Before GroupM, he took up senior roles at Dentsu and ad departments of Shanghai Media Group, Shanghai TV, Sin Min Evening News and Shanghai TV Weekly.
Jin replaces Lisa Wei who has been promoted to take up a strategic senior role within Mindshare China as partner for The Exchange.
