Career between West and East

Deming Wu is making a career leap from Toronto to Shanghai.

Deming Wu has a plan. Since his first day at Kuehne+Nagel’s North American headquarters near New York in 2015, he has known that he wanted to carve out a career in logistics. He receives full support from his employer: “Kuehne+Nagel is the best company for me to realize my dreams.” Deming’s career is something to behold: after his stint in the USA, he took over a dynamic team in Canada; soon he will take on a key management role in China. There he will look after all industrial clients. As a native Chinese who has spent the majority of his life in North America, he is an excellent mediator between cultures. His constant career companion at Kuehne+Nagel is the Group-wide Global Talent Programme. It covers all development steps, from onboarding and employee development to follow-up support in the event of a successful placement. “Even more important, however, is the personal exchange. My bosses are mentors rather than supervisors.”
