Colleague Focus – Meet Linda Xu
This edition of our Colleague Focus is centered on Linda Xu.
This week the spotlight is on Linda Xu. Linda attended Shanghai University of Finance and Economics and received a bachelor’s degree in accounting. She has been with Mar-Bal for nearly four years and is an accountant at our Shanghai Sales office.
Linda’s favorite part about working for Mar-Bal is the “sufficient trust in our sales office team. Everybody completes their own responsibilities.”
Linda plays a big role at Mar-Bal and shared with us her proudest moment. “My proudest moment is that I represent Mar-Bal to register our Chinese WOFE plant and lead the whole process,” Linda shared. “I contacted and negotiated with the local government officer. It involved four places (USA, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Taizhou). With every parties support, we accomplished the register timely.”
Mar-Bal has provided Linda with professional training, which has helped with her career development.
Jim Wojtila, Mar-Bal’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO), is one person that Linda looks up to. “One reason is his dedication spirit and professional efficiency,” Linda said. “When the sales office opened, he always works with the sales office team on his evening hours”.
When it comes to food, Linda is not much of a cook. However, she mentioned that she does enjoy when her husband or mother cooks.
One of Linda’s unforgettable vacations was to the United States. She described how the blue skies, fleecy clouds and air are different from Shanghai.
THANK YOU for you hard work, Linda! We are proud to call you our colleague!
