Shanghai (November 5, 2019) ― Helen Chen, Greater China Managing Partner in L.E.K.’s Shanghai office, has been named one of Consulting Magazine’s Global Leaders in Consulting for 2019, for Excellence in Engagement. Global Leader award recipients are recognized for their outstanding leadership qualities and extraordinary influence within their firms and over the entire consulting profession.

Chen, the leader of L.E.K.’s China and Asia Life Sciences and Healthcare practice and Director of the Asia-Pacific Life Sciences Centre of Excellence, is an expert and business leader in China’s healthcare and life sciences industry. With 30 years of consulting and industry experience, Chen has served over 300 clients in their China and Asia expansion strategies, helping them navigate changes in China’s accession to the WTO and current headwinds in global trade relations, as well as volatilities in between.

“Helen launched L.E.K.’s China Life Sciences practice, which has organically grown to a substantial part of our overall China practice. She’s built a reputation as the go-to person in China healthcare and life sciences,” said Nick Holder, Partner and Head of L.E.K. Consulting’s Asia-Pacific region. “We couldn’t be prouder of Helen’s achievements and congratulate her on this well-merited award, as she continues to make considerable contributions to our organization and our clients.”

“I am absolutely thrilled to receive this award from Consulting Magazine, but I must share the credit with my colleagues and clients, who have made it all so gratifying and worthwhile,” said Chen.

Helen will be honored at a gala awards dinner on December 5, 2019, in London.
