Amit's first steps in China

Amit arrived in China for the first time in 1994.
After backpacking in China for a few months, he went to Taiwan and studied Chinese in the Cultural University in Taipei.

At the same time, he was working for a local trading firm getting his first introduction to the business culture in Asia. After two years managing the middle east and east Europe division, Amit moved to Guangdong and opened his first company.

At a time when factories couldn’t export without export companies, very few people in the factories spoke English and very few experienced foreigners in China Amit could learn from, Amit had to spend days and weeks in the factories, making all the mistakes and figuring out the do’s and the don’ts by himself.

In the first decade of this millennium, Amit established and managed a vertical retail operation that designed, manufactured, and sold products under his own self-made brand.

Amit has cross-functional experience in managing a wide range of departments. This includes areas such as purchasing, vendor management, supply chains, logistics and HR management, as well as full sales cycle.

Founding CSO Projement

Prior to founding CSO, Amit worked as the China subsidiary GM for a large engineering group and COO – China for a leading retail chain. During these years Amit saw again how important it is for the western management to directly communicate with their manufacturer. He saw how direct communication remove obstacles created by third parties involved in the business transaction, and he saw the immense contribution the China team has, bringing to the discussion table local knowhow and industry knowledge as well as sending news from the production line to the management in real time.

At that time Amit decided he want’s to make that local knowledge and access to information from the production line available to his customers. Amit also realized that in the dynamic reality in China, flexibility is key for success, and long-term fix costs are the rocks that prevent from organizations to get to new heights.
