Acterna, the provider of communications test solutions to telecommunications and cable network operators, recently announced new investments to capitalize on the best growth opportunities in China.
These investments include the appointment of former Nortel executive, Kevin Ng, as managing director for greater China and the establishment of Acterna's Asia-Pacific headquarters in Hong Kong.
Representing its commitment to China and focus on the highest standards of customer service, Acterna recently established Acterna (Tianjin) Limited, a new legal business entity registered in Tianjin. Tianjin is a free trade zone established in China to facilitate import/export processing, international trade logistics and currency conversions for multi-national corporations operating in the country.
Based in Acterna's Beijing sales office, Kevin Ng brings 20 years of IT, network and telecommunications industry experience to his new position as Acterna's managing director of greater China. Ng's responsibilities include leading Acterna's Sales and Service organization in China and building on Acterna's existing partnerships with customers such as China Telecom, China Netcom, China Mobile, Huawei Technologies, China Railway Network, China Unicom, ZTE and Shanghai Bell. He reports to Jim Platner, senior vice president of Acterna's Asia-Pacific Sales and Services organization.
Acterna also announced that it has moved its regional headquarters from Melbourne to Hong Kong in an effort to locate its base of operations closer to a higher concentration of targeted markets in the region, including China. The headquarters office is located in the Bank of East Asia Building at 56 Gloucester Road, Wanchai.
