Nick Townsend, managing director for T&T Northeast Asia, said: "Despite the challenges facing the Chinese economy, we see clients turning to us more and more as they need tighter control of their capital projects.
"As a result of this our client base is expanding and our team growing. Tino’s expertise will allow us to explore further opportunities to support clients across the high-tech and manufacturing sectors."
Chang said: "I’m confident I can support the team in China, identifying business development opportunities and helping to foster sustainable growth."
T&T has six offices in China, and recently relocated staff to boost its Asian business.
