Chris Harvey, General Manager, Peak Scientific,
is standing for the position of At-Large

I have been living and working in China for 13 years. I initially moved to Beijing to help setup operations for a British Manufacturer, and moved to Shanghai in 2007.  In 2012 I joined Peak Scientific Instruments Limited, as the China General Manager, tasked with exploring the market for Peak’s UK manufactured Gas Generators in China. Today, the company has more than 2000 laboratories using Peak’s products, along with a growing base of industrial customers with turnkey on-site nitrogen generation from Peak. In 2016, Peak Scientific was the proud winner of the British Business Awards 2016, Best New Exporter to China Award.  

I believe there is a huge opportunity for British SME’s in China and, if elected, I would like to contribute my China experience, together with the experience from the wider membership, to help others navigate through the opportunities and challenges, and the British Chambers is the perfect platform for such collaboration.
