Weber Shandwick expands Chinese operations to Shenzhen

Weber Shandwick has expanded its presence in China with the opening of an office in Shenzhen. Leo Tang has been appointed head of Shenzhen and will lead the new office.

Prior to his role with Weber Shandwick, Tang has held multiple roles at Chinese technology brands such as Huawei, TCL and Nubia. He will report to Rocky Wang, head of Southern China, Weber Shandwick.

“We continue to see opportunities for clients out of Shenzhen as Chinese companies expand both domestically and globally,” said Darren Burns, president, Weber Shandwick China. “Having a local presence there will help us more deeply embed in the culture and best solve client challenges.”

Weber Shandwick entered the China market in 1993 and currently has offices in Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai.

On the other hand, Ogilvy China also opened a new office in Shenzhen this month.
