Echo, Sales Manager, Suspension Business Unit, China
I studied at Xi'an International Studies University, in Shanghai and have a bachelor’s degree in Japanese language and literature. Now I work as a Sales Manager at Hitachi Astemo and I am responsible for growing sales with car manufacturers in China for our global Suspension Business Unit. As part of such a big organization like Hitachi Astemo, it is necessary to meet high standards within a larger global business structure. This entails maintaining relationships with existing customers and outreach to potential new customers. I work closely with my team and colleagues from around the world on strategy alignment so that we can better serve the China region.
Sincerity is the cornerstone of success in all business activities. This value means that employees act with a sense of ownership and honesty. We take responsibility for our actions. We treat co-workers and customers fairly. We also make judgements and take actions based on what is right rather than profit and loss. This value is important in my sales role.

I work to maintain good customer relationships and provide individualized service to them based on their business needs. Internally, my goal is to build a sincere, cohesive and collaborative sales team.
Before joining Hitachi, I worked for four companies, including a French, a Japanese and a China foreign cooperative joint venture. This diversity of ownership and nationalities has made me aware of the cultural differences among people, but also the fact that we when we work together respectfully we can achieve a company’s vision. At Hitachi Astemo, my goal is to build an open and inclusive sales team in the multicultural environment of Hitachi Astemo.
It is important to obtain news from a variety of channels and to look for industry trends including in mobility and advance technology. There is great value in carefully listening to customers in order to understand their needs. This insight helps me promote new products and technologies.
I am glad I made the decision to join Hitachi. I encourage those considering a career with us to have the courage to embrace a new challenge. When you join the company, you can work with your leaders to plan your career in the short and long term based on the company’s strategic vision and your goals. You will gain valuable experience each day that will prepare you for the future.
