Phil Morris, Wealth Manager, deVere Shanghai,
is standing for the position of At-Large
Phil jumped at the chance to make Shanghai his home just over a year ago. His first business trip to China was in 1996 and his career has involved multiple visits per year ever since.
His early career saw him undertake roles with NatWest Bank, Marks & Spencer and Nestlé. He went on to become a significant contributor to the growth of a personal computer company whose legacy lives on here in China in the form of TCL. Subsequently he started and sold several companies prior to moving into the personal financial advisory industry which he thoroughly enjoys.
He has worked in cross-functional and international teams throughout his career to date and wishes to bring his communication skills, enthusiasm, ideas and SME business experience to the work of the Chamber. He is not frightened to question the status quo and look for efficiencies on behalf of the Chamber and its members.
I have very much enjoyed participating in the British Chamber events to date hence my desire to become more involved and give something back to the organisation.
However my role involves me travelling throughout China on a regular basis and I already know that I will be unable to attend the Hustings at the ‘Sundowner’ event on Thursday 11th May due to a prior business engagement in Shenzhen.
I would like to warmly invite any member to get in touch with me on the telephone for an informal chat on any aspect of The Chamber and the forthcoming election. My mobile number is 183 2137 4380.
Aside from speaking on the phone, please feel free to approach me at any of the forthcoming events.
I very much look forward to meeting more of the membership in the coming weeks and months regardless of whether I am elected.
