Qingdao 10 years
On November 11, a team of CellMark Paper executives gathered in Qingdao, China to celebrate the office’s 10-year anniversary. CellMark Paper Divisional Head Joe Hoffman, along with a contingent from Gothenburg, made the trip to the Shangdong Province to congratulate their colleagues for a truly exceptional decade.
The evening started with a traditional Chinese good luck ceremony. It was followed by remarks from the executives, who expressed their heartfelt gratitude to the Qingdao employees for their unmatched commitment and performance. They offered a special thanks to Diana Qiu and Vanessa Zhang, the office’s first employees.
“The Qingdao location has been extremely successful, and grown dramatically in just 10 years,” Joe Hoffman said. “In addition to developing several anchor clients and establishing a strong footprint in this critical and growing region, the Qingdao team has really embraced CellMark’s commitment to sustainability and corporate social responsibility. We are looking forward to seeing our colleagues here build on their tremendous success in the next decade, and beyond.”
Hoffman also mentioned how impressed he was with the Qingdao team’s outstanding esprit de corps.
“It was heartwarming to see how happy and proud these people are to be part of the CellMark family. Moments like these make it very gratifying to work at CellMark Paper, and inspire us to help them continue to excel.”
