Lecturer:

Zeng Bin was enrolled into Wuhan University to study economics in 1995. After graduation, he joined Alibaba, an Internet company with the most development potential at that time, and became one of 300 pioneering employees. In 2008, he studied MBA at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. From 2003 to 2012, he served as the Retail Director (South China) and General Manager (Tablet PC Department) of Lenovo Group. After that, Zeng Bin served as the Marketing General Manager of Joyvio Group as Lenovo involved in agriculture, and became one of the first group to enter the fresh food field. Thanks to his work in Joyvio, he has accumulated a wealth of experience in the operation of fresh food e-commerce and also found problems existing in the fresh food supply chain, thus recognized the importance of restructuring the fresh food industry chain and improving the efficiency of the industry. Therefore, Zeng Bin worked with XuZheng, old partner of Lenovo Joyvio and created Missfresh, entering the fresh food e-commerce market with great potential.
