Jimmy Chen is Chief Enabling Officer and Managing Partner of Amrop China who previously served in Amrop's Global Executive Board and chaired its Asia Pacific Region. Leveraging on his decades’ management experience helping companies grow values globally and in China, Jimmy advises company heads and boards to better manage their enterprises via the right design of different boards, committees and leadership teams, and their right executive appointment and steering.

Before Amrop, he held global and Asia Pacific executive and business management positions with Aleris, Noveon and Dow Chemical. He led Aleris’s growth via organic and strategic acquisitions in APAC region, especially China. At Noveon (now Lubrizol), he transformed and grew both its Global Static Control Business and the APAC Region, and was a member of its Global Leadership Team that tripled shareholder value in four years. Earlier Jimmy enjoyed a progressive career at Dow Chemical where he held global / regional business, GM, and M&A leadership positions for multi commodity and differentiated businesses.

Jimmy shares with international and local clients what it takes for different companies to succeed (or fail) in cross-culture glocalization management – from market entry, greenfield investment, JV, M&A, digitization, transformation, board design, to family business’s sustainability – covering 2B and 2C industries including health, consumer, manufacturing, new retail, digital, mobility, renewables, agriculture, and private equity. His accumulative China, Asia and global knowledge, coupled with continuing daily top management and consulting exchanges, allow Jimmy to use a sharing approach in advising leaders to make better decisions towards their enterprise and personal vision attainment.

Jimmy holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Manchester and the University of Stirling. He attended executive programs at IMD, INSEAD and the Kelley School of Business. Married with two sons and two hounds, he enjoys traveling, racket sports and hiking. He is especially passionate in helping purposeful leaders, entrepreneurs and Family-Owned-Enterprises achieve sustainable success, happiness, and greatness.
