XD Design - Principal and Founder
“ I am a globetrotter, but Taiwan has been my biz base for almost 30 years. Founding XD in Y2K, I set up shop in this energetic Asian-Pacific hub and it’s been the best business decision I ever made. Originally, Taiwan was the one-stop shop for all the sourcing & manufacturing needs for both clients and my personal startups. Over the decades it has matured into Asia’s No. 1, global quality, design and engineering hub that exudes serious talent and ingenious innovation. It’s also a stone’s throw from all Asia-Pacific’s best technology, major suppliers and quality makers. ”
