Rasmussen & Simonsen International Pte Limited (RSI) have appointed logistics industry veteran Mark Millar to lead their expansion into the China market.
As RSI’s Regional Director for Greater China, Mark will be responsible for establishing RSI in the China market place, developing business with targeted customers and building the appropriate infrastructure and organization to serve the needs and demands of this expanding market.
RSI is an industry-specific training and consulting company, focused on providing best-in-class learning and development solutions for the global shipping, logistics and transportation sector. Headquartered in Singapore, RSI has successfully delivered corporate training programs in over twenty countries for the industry’s leading service providers - including some of the world’s largest ocean carriers, shipping terminal operators and 3PL logistics companies.
Mark Millar has over 20 years experience in the global logistics sector and brings to RSI his extensive knowledge of the greater China market, where he held executive positions at Platinum Logistix, Modus Link, Exel Contract Logistics (now DHL) and UPS Supply Chain Solutions.
A regular commentator on China supply chain issues, Mark has developed a wealth of market and industry expertise, complementing RSI’s industry specific focus on the global shipping, logistics and transportation sectors.
Mark’s distinguished international business development career - in Europe, USA and Asia Pacific - spans more than 20 years and he is an active participant in industry organizations, currently serving as Vice President for Supply Chain Asia and as Chairman of the International Relations Committee at the Hong Kong Logistics Association. He previously served as Honorary Chairman of the China Supply Chain Council and Vice-Chair of the Logistics Committee at the American Chamber in Shanghai.
Mark Millar commented “This is a great opportunity to provide corporate training and development programs that will improve the skills of our industry professionals in China. Throughout the supply chain, logistics, shipping and transportation sectors, talent shortages are frequently reported as one of the critical challenges facing businesses in China. RSI’s management are all well respected in our industry, and the RSI training programs, with their range of flexible customization options, are recognized as best-in-class. I am excited to be joining the RSI team and am confident we will grow a successful business in China.”
RSI’s greater China headquarters will be registered in Hong Kong, with additional branches to be established in the mainland as the business grows and develops.
Amanda Rasmussen, Chief Executive Officer of RSI said “We are delighted that Mark is joining our management team to lead our expansion into the China market – his track record in business development and his extensive industry background provide an excellent foundation for establishing RSI in the China logistics sector, whilst also enabling us to develop local relationships with our existing global customers - many of whom are seeking industry-specific skills development programs for their China employees.”
