Founder & President

Nigel has more than 20 years of business experience in the US, Australia, UK, Europe and various countries throughout Asia.

Once Nigel started travelling more extensively in Asia and in particular China, he realised that Western businesses face common challenges on the ground. Some tasks, such as getting around a city by taxi, are quite basic, and yet overwhelming for visitors who don't speak the local language. Even more of an impediment are the issues of actually doing business in China, with cultural barriers and differences in laws and operational procedures proving more substantial than anticipated. And so the idea of Nihao Global was born.

Nigel has operated in China for over 8 years and has accumulated much knowledge is transmitted and reflected in the services of Nihao Global.
