Zhang Xin Bio
Zhang Xin co-founded SOHO China in 1995. As CEO, she has led the company to become the largest developer of prime office real estate in China with 5.5 million square meters (60 million square feet) in projects in Beijing and Shanghai. Her collaborations with leading international architects have transformed Chinese skylines with iconic landmark buildings.
In 2007, SOHO China was successfully listed on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong raising proceeds of USD $1.9 billion, one of Asia’s largest commercial real estate IPOs to date. The company has since grown to a multi-billion dollar business, while Zhang Xin and her husband Pan Shiyi have become one of China’s foremost power couples.
Born in Beijing in 1965, Zhang Xin moved to Hong Kong at the age of 14, where she worked as a factory girl for five years before obtaining university degrees at Sussex and Cambridge Universities in the UK. After working in investment banking at Goldman Sachs and Travelers Group, she returned to Beijing to co-found SOHO China.
Xin’s rags-to-riches story has embodied the rise of China’s entrepreneurship and she is active commentator on China real estate, economic growth, current affairs, and philanthropy. She has over 9.5 million followers on Sina weibo, China’s “twitter”.
