Oliver Pearce graduated from MA Publishing at LCC in 2008. He has since gone on to become Global Marketing Director at ReneSola Ltd., a leading developer of green energy projects and supplier of energy-efficient technology products, in Shanghai.
Oliver started his career as an editor at Noozz Media Group, an online Middle East-focused business information service, before moving to his wife Jiang’s hometown of Shanghai in 2009 to work as a copy-editor for the magazine Business Forum China. He then went on to work for various publications such as the 21st Century Business Herald, Interfax and the China Economic Review, before joining ReneSola originally as a Senior Marketing Content Manager in 2014.
In 2012, Oliver contacted UAL keen to find out ways of bringing graduates in Shanghai together. With no group set up, Oliver began work building a supportive, inclusive and fun community in the city, inlisting the help of others to then form a committee to help manage activities. In 2014 the Shanghai Alumni Association was officially launched with Oliver as President. Oliver and his fellow committee members not only work to support Shanghai based alumni, but those across all of China by collaborating with other local groups.
