Mike began his career at the Shanghai branch of China National Light Industrial Products Import & Export Corp., a massive Chinese Government-owned import/export company.

Following that period of training Mike quickly rose within the company serving four years in sales and four years as a department manager. His experience with ITI, including eight years working at the company’s headquarters in Sugar Land, Texas, has given him a clear perspective from the client’s side as well.
Mike is a problem solver. His extensive experience with many diverse ITI clients and a wide variety of overseas manufacturing processes has made him the perfect on-the-ground resource as well as the vice president of ITI’s China Operations.
