In 2016, Billy got an opportunity to take care of business development and sales team development for China as National Sales Manager in China. A year later, Billy moved into the Regional Sales Manager role for Asia, and started leading the Asia sales development. In this role he has been steering the sales directions of Greater China, Southeast Asia, and North Asia.
Billy relocated from his hometown Shanghai to Singapore, in October 2018, in order to better support the Southeast Asia business development by being based in the hub of Southeast Asia..
