Paul Lien is Managing Partner, Senior Consultant, and  Manager of PCI Executive Search Consultants in Beijing. In addition to managing office operations, Paul often manages “tier-one” search assignments for senior executives and job seekers with very discrete skills. 

Paul started his professional career in the 1970s, immediately after completing a degree in Electronics Engineering from Taipei Institute of Technology, and he has been in the technology field ever since. Over the years, Paul accumulated valuable professional experience and industry knowledge from management assignments at well-known multinational companies, such as Timex, Unisys, and Hewlett-Packard. While working at HP, Paul was sponsored to complete EMBA courses at National Taiwan University, which endowed him with solid theoretical knowledge in business management and hands-on experience. 

In 1998, Mr. Lien left HP as the Outsourcing Business Operations Manager (Asia Pacific) and then established PCI’s executive search office in Shanghai. Since 2001, Paul has been facilitating executive-search assignments in Beijing and placing a large number of candidates in a range of management positions, primarily in the IT and related manufacturing industries.
