The World: Shanghai - Meadan and Hughes to manage MindShare China

MindShare has split the management duties for its Chinese operation between two managing partners as its business expands in the region.

Andrew Meadan, who was recently the chief executive of MindShare's Japanese operation, will manage offices in Shanghai, Fuzhou, Guangzhou, Nanjing and Shenzen, while Rob Hughes, the Beijing office managing director, will look after offices in Beijing, Chonqing and Tianjin.

Mark Patterson, MindShare's North Asian chief executive, pointed to strong business and recruitment growth as the main reasons for the split.
