At the beginning of this month, entrepreneur and author Jack Perkowski, wrote an article for the FORBES magazine in which he analyzes the current state of automotive industry in China, its opportunities and challenges. Since automotive industry is certainly a topic of great interest for CRM FACTORY and for many of our readers, we would like to share Mr. Perkowski’s opinion on the matter.
China’s auto industry is alive and well
2015 was a watershed year for China autos, marking an end to 15 years of fast growth that saw vehicle sales increase tenfold, but also bringing to the fore some interesting new opportunities in New Energy Vehicles (“NEVs”), the aftermarket and connectivity.
MCON Group is the first European rooted AWS Consulting Partner in China and our colleagues Serena Song, Jack Sun and Kane Chen received its partnership certificate from Werner Vogels, CTO of Amazon Web Services.
Amazon Web Services is bringing its world class services to China and has been showing and demonstrating its vision and services to the audience.
Reducing infrastructure cost tremendously, providing platforms for agile developments within minutes and running autoscaling lowcost environments is now possible in China.
The event not only featured a technical side, but also shared the vision and future planning in a high level management for the large Chinese market.
MCON Group with more than 7 years of experience in China is happy to open this opportunities especially to foreign companies in China.
Last week was extremely exciting for MCON GROUP, serviceplan and DAT! The long awaited day came the last weekend of June when we finally moved into our brand new office!
The whole task of moving was very delicate and required a lot of patience, responsibility and care. The result was even better than expected! In record time we manage to have all our assets installed and ready to continue delivering even bigger WOW’s!
Check out some of the highlights of our new office over the last week and some of the events that we already have running, such as our 1st. ‘Company Breakfast’ and our traditional ‘Friday Company Meeting’, now bigger, better and funnier. Enjoy!
It’s been almost 7 years since we kicked off our first office in e-Tower in Guanghua Lu. In 2009 we rented a single office space on the 12th floor and made it our home. In 2010 as we expand we acquired a new office on the same floor. In 2011, we opened a 3rd office on the 22nd floor, then our 4th office also on 22nd floor in 2012. In 2013 our JV partner serviceplan officially joined us, and we opened our 5th office also on the 22nd floor. In less than one year later, by the middle of 2014, we opened 2 new offices on the 15th and 16th floors! That’s a total of 7 offices distributed over 4 floors of e-Tower!
Although it’s been a fun place to work from right the beginning, representing the real growth and development of MCON GROUP in China to where we are now, we soon realized that with such growth, and certain limitations having offices in different locations, we wanted something bigger, nicer and unique to represent who we are.
A group from CRM and our partner agency serviceplan, started looking for a place that in itself would define what we stand for: Delivering a WOW! Also that could show that diversity, innovation, creativity, flexibility, collaboration, trust and respect could all be reflected in physical space.
Although the search wasn’t easy: WE FOUND THAT PLACE……“THE PLACE”.
Under construction… literally
In July 2015 we will move into a new office location not far from the CBD. Our new office, which is the whole 24th floor of the South Tower in The Place Mall, is undergoing huge renovations to make our office the perfect working environment!
We are all very excited and we would like to extend our excitement by sharing a bit of the whole construction process to date.
Keep following us, as more updates will be coming soon!
