Jonathan Egan

About

A native of Kildare, Ireland Jonathan graduated in Economics from Trinity College, Dublin and made the move to Taiwan to study Mandarin. In late 2004 he relocated to Shanghai, China where he first worked as a program manager for an automotive trading company.

Over the following years Jonathan consulted for several companies in outsourcing their production needs to China improving product designs and capabilities while also providing outstanding cost savings. Jonathan developed an understanding of the engineering and resources required to get big projects off-the-ground. Generating and maintaining trust on both sides is what keeps the Chinese vendor and Western Customer happy over the long run. In the 12 years spent living in China Jonathan has worked his Mandarin to fluency and has leveraged a formidable network of Chinese automotive suppliers becoming their exclusive agent to the US market.

In 2012 Jonathan set up China Metal Solutions (CMS) to provide a “turn-key” set of solutions for not just for product design, manufacturing and quality control, but also financing and supply chain management. CMS specializes in exterior decorative components for the commercial vehicle industry, and these parts have been assembled on millions of trucks in the US alone.

Jonathan has always been an active member of the Irish community in Shanghai and was Chairman of the Irish Chamber of Commerce (2013-2015) and was joint organiser and Chairman of the 2015 Asia Pacific Irish Business Forum (APIBF) in Shanghai.

Jonathan met his wife Alison in China, and the two now live in Chicago, IL with their 1 year - old son Harry.
