Despatch Industries has announced it has promoted Dr. Ellen Cheng to General Manager of China and Taiwan.
In her new role, Dr. Cheng will be responsible for Despatch's sales, service, technology, and business development activity in China and Taiwan for the company's solar, carbon fibre and thermal technology business units.
“Since joining Despatch Industries in 2011, Ellen has been a critical leader for the company,” states Pat O'Brien, Despatch’s Vice President and General Manager. “Her extensive business experience and background in sales, business development, R&D and operations management make Ellen the ideal person to lead Despatch as we focus on growing our presence in China and Taiwan. Ellen has done an impressive job managing our Taiwan region and positioning Despatch as a preferred supplier to the solar industry. We look forward to her duplicating this success in China and Taiwan for our thermal technology and carbon fibre business, and expanding on our solar leadership as we transition our manufacturing to be closer to our customers.”
