This is a new position since June 2021. Justin joins us to lead our portfolio management and finance operations in China, as well as support our investments, portfolio companies, and exits. He has more than 15 years of experience in finance and accounting with a focus on deal advisory and fund operations.
Justin will strengthen our team and help us support our Chinese portfolio companies better, and capture investment opportunities in the Chinese tech space.
We asked him three questions to get to know him better:
What got you hooked on the venture capital industry?
“Working with groundbreaking innovation attracted me the most. Every day we see new technologies develop and new ideas emerge that end up shaping our daily life and I feel so excited to be a part of it!”
What are you working on right now?
"I spend most of my time on deal advisory and portfolio support. With three exits and three investments on the horizon here in China, my days are really busy already."
What tech sector interests you the most, what are you eager to invest in?
"The combination of human and artificial intelligence excites me a lot. Part of why I joined NGP Capital is that not only do we invest heavily in AI, we also use it on a daily basis in our work"
Prior to joining NGP Capital, Justin worked for Kinzon Capital as CFO for more than five years. He also spent five years with Ernst & Young Transaction Advisory Service where he was a senior manager primarily providing financial due diligence services to PE/VC firms. He started his career at KPMG Shanghai as an auditor.
Justin holds a bachelor's degree in business law from the Shanghai University of International Business and Economics. He is also a China CPA holder.
We are excited to start this new journey together!
