Nasdaq-listed Sino-Global Shipping America, Ltd. has appointed Mr. Kelin Wu to the newly created position of Chief Marketing Officer, where he will lead the company's global marketing program and strategies. He will report directly to CEO Lei Cao.
Wu was previously the founder and primary shareholder of Mandarine Ocean Ltd, a Shanghai, China-based shipping company. Sino-Global recently signed a share purchase agreement in which the company acquired a 75% majority position in Mandarine Ocean. Wu has extensive experience in the ocean freight services business, having served as one of the upstream clients of Sino-Global's light-asset shipping logistic services.
Prior to founding Mandarine Ocean, Wu, 45, served as General Manager of Shanghai Vasteast Int'l, a ship owner and operator.
With the addition of Wu, Sino-Global expects to leverage its light-asset shipping service business while expanding further upstream toward the customer in the shipping logistics value chain.
