Bubs Australia names new chief
Lin took the seat on 16 August as the new head of the infant formula maker. He has joined Bubs in January 2017 when the company was re-listed on the ASX.
“Dennis has been a tremendous asset to the business since joining our Board and played an integral role in developing both our domestic expansion plans and route to market strategy for China,” said Bubs Australia founder and executive director, Kristy Carr.
“He has provided us with wise counsel on the commercial aspects of transactions with Australian and Chinese commercial partners, as well as offering guidance on international trade and regulatory measures.”
Bubs said Lin is also a partner at BDO, where he has lead the firm’s China Advisory Services, specialising in commercial transactions; merger and acquisitions; and capital market activities between Chinese and Australian businesses, with a particular focus in agriculture and consumer goods sectors.
“The Board is confident that Lin’s experience is uniquely relevant to our business as we seek to leverage our strong domestic position and enter the fast-growing Mother & Baby segment in China and Southeast Asia,” Carr added.
“Bubs has a unique offering and is well positioned for strong international performance in a dynamic market sector. I look forward to continuing to work with the Board and our strong management team to realise the Company’s vision and growth trajectory,” Lin further commented on his new position.
He has experience as a chartered accountant and a solicitor. He also has been assigned in various related sectors in Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong as well as acted as the lead financial advisor and project leader on transactions up to AUD1 billion. Lin has a special interest in advising on inbound investments from greater China.
