DST International appoints new General Manager for China

China - 11 March 2008

DST International (DST) has today announced the appointment of Jeremy Huo Jianwen as General Manager of its China operations. DST is a global leader in providing business solutions for the financial services industry.

Jeremy Huo comes to DST with over 25 years of experience in the financial services industry. Having worked for ICBC, Accenture and Unisys, Jeremy has a unique perspective: that of a client, a management consultant, and of an experienced system integrator.

Mr Huo said, “For more than 6 years I have observed the way DST has moved into China. They spent time learning the nature of the market and working closely with their early partners to get an understanding of the unique challenges and obstacles that companies face in an emerging market like this. Now that DST has delivered more than 20 successful projects in China, I believe that we have a very solid foundation for aggressive and sustainable growth.”

Mr Huo continued, “DST is one of the few truly global organisations with an impressive presence in all of the world’s major financial markets. Its parent company, DST Systems, Inc., is the largest third party provider of shareowner recordkeeping in the US. With over 700 clients around the world, DST holds powerful positions in Asia, Europe, Australia and South Africa. I am very excited to join the DST team.”

Commenting on Jeremy's appointment, Rhonda Lepsch, CEO for DST's operations in Asia said, "We are delighted to have Jeremy Huo join the DST team in Asia. DST has invested heavily in both its solutions and infrastructure in China and has built a solid foundation for business growth since setting up our first office in Shanghai in 2003. DST is now well positioned to rapidly expand its client base and solutions offerings in China. Jeremy brings to DST a unique combination of extensive business experience, in-depth knowledge of the China financial services markets and international best management practices. I am confident that under Jeremy’s leadership, DST’s operations and client base in China will expand significantly in the upcoming years.”
