Raising the Bar
For years, the core of Conair’s business was the American household. Lee and the remarkable team he built on the domestic side had a vision to put a Conair product in every home in America, and they’ve just about reached their goal. But long before it was in sight, Lee had already started building his international team. Thirty-five years ago he brought in Anthony Leung to help develop and oversee Conair’s extensive manufacturing and R&D operations in Hong Kong/ China. Anthony has won the respect of everyone he works with. He takes great pride in the part he’s played in the incredible growth of Conair’s Far East operations, which now includes well over 500 employees. Today he is the familiar face of Conair Hong Kong/China, and one who mirrors the company he’s been a part of for over three decades. Jess Sit joined Conair’s international team in 1995 and is based in Hong Kong. In charge of Far East sales and marketing, Jess is a pioneer who loves what she does and assumes all challenges. Her ability to invade markets with her strong strategy and positioning expertise is responsible for helping Conair more than double its business in the Far East. There’s still tremendous opportunity to grow business in that part of the world, and Jess and her team will make it happen.
Lee’s vision was to have a Conair product – or two – in every home in America.His new vision is to have one in every home in the world!
