Communispace to open China office

Asia Pacific Features

CHINA — Communispace has announced plans to expand into China, following an increase in client demand for services in the country. The office will work with Jigsaw International.

As part of this expansion Communispace will be partnering with Chinese consumer insights company Jigsaw International.

The Shanghai office will serve as Communispace’s eighth office and third regional headquarters. “Moving into China marks the next step in our rapid growth,” said Communispace CEO Diane Hessan.

The move comes almost a year after Communispace launched its first fully localised Chinese community in September 2011, which has had additional successes with clients in the entertainment, energy, media and financial industries.

George Kao is director, China operations and Evelyn Tan director, client services. Communispace will recruit and runs its Chinese communities in Mandarin, local simplified Chinese and English.
