James Allan, Regional Director, JLL,
is standing for the position of Vice Chair and At-Large
I have lived and worked in Shanghai since 2006 and Shanghai is very much my home. My “hands on” experience with the British Chamber spans over 7 years from 2008 – 2015. I have supported and promoted the property industry in my previous role as the Chairman of the Property Focus Group (2008 - 2011) which met at least six times a year for both social and professional events. In 2011, I was elected to the Chamber’s executive committee and subsequently elected to the position of Vice Chair from 2013 to 2015. In my previous roles with the Chamber I was actively involved in promoting British interest’s, both academic and business, in Shanghai and regularly met senior officials from the UK and China.
If elected, I would ensure that the Chamber remains strong, independent and relevant to the membership. I would be delighted to meet with members and discuss my vision and ideas for the British Chamber in Shanghai.
