OUR LEADERSHIP

Alex Huang

Co-founder & CEO

Alex has been driving Azoya’s vision, strategy and growth as it helps more and more overseas retailers succeed in China. Alex had previously worked as a general manager at an IT giant company in China for 14 years, leading over 2,000 employees of multi-cultural backgrounds. He had taken the lead in some major business expansion of his former company. He is resourceful and well connected with China’s influential business elites, which is crucial to help an overseas retailer start a business in China. With Alex taking the helm, Azoya has formed a young and vibrant team that dedicates to delivering its promise to its partners.

Don Zhao

Co-founder & Executive Director

Don is a business pioneer who never settles for less. During his 10 years of experiences working in more than 23 countries, he had developed a broad vision on business innovation. When he co-founded Azoya with Alex, he undertook a mission to bridge the gap between overseas retailers and the increasing market demand from China through solid work and innovation. Don is enterprising in operating business. His experience in supervising telecom programs with a total value of over 1 billion USD had made him a go-getter who always strives to achieve more. He had spoken globally about his insights into eCommerce innovation and how it can be applied to helping overseas retailers grow business in China.

WHY US

DIRECT BRAND EXPOSURE

Although Azoya helps you with all the operational work in China, it remains invisible to Chinese customers. Instead, Chinese customers only know they are buying directly from you, experiencing your products and services, approving of your brand. You are given the privilege to build your own customer base and customer loyalty, rather than being restricted by the local E-com platforms.

COST-EFFECTIVE AND RISK-FREE

Under Azoya’s one-stop solutions, you won’t risk your investment on setting up local business entity, hiring local staff or opening office in China, etc. There’s no entry cost, which is indispensable in traditional expansion. No local stocking is needed, which will significantly reduce the risks you face. Since Azoya’s solutions and services cover all aspects in cross-border eCommerce, you don’t need to find other local partners.

FULLY-MANAGED AND CAREFREE

Azoya’s well-established solutions are supported by cutting-edge IT technology, experienced operation team who has intimate knowledge about the local market. Azoya’s dedicated experts will be responsible for all your local ground work from startup strategy to localized marketing. With Azoya doing all the operational work, you only need to focus on what you’re good at and fulfill the orders.

PARTNERS' TESTIMONIALS

Jim Buckle feelunique COO

When the Jersey Economic Development Department introduced Azoya to us, we were impressed by Azoya’s understanding of the challenges for an international eCommerce business selling cross-border into China and by their willingness to invest in building a business in partnership with us. Working with Azoya we are able to have a Chinese language version of our site, which meets the expectations of the Chinese consumer, supported by relevant local marketing. Importantly, we have a partner that understands the local market and the local customer in a way that we are unable to do from the UK.

Sebastian Kraus Bodyguard Apotheke CEO

Azoya is a serious and competent partner. We have an almost round-the-clock care delivered by Azoya.We have 100 percent trust on Azoya's expertise and the cooperation between us is a fun. We have chosen Azoya because we want to work only with the best to uphold our image as one of the best pharmacies in Germany .

Cedric O’Neil 1001pharmacies CEO

I’ve been told that China offers an enormous market, but have also heard that big European companies fail to survive there. We chose Azoya because it has intimate knowledge in the Chinese market. What we’re pleased about is that with Azoya taking care of the groundwork in operating and marketing our Chinese channel, we only need to focus on supply and fulfillment – for us, that’s just like selling in France.
