Andre Shen is Founder and CEO of Bridge Consulting.
Andre has been working in the social good sector in China for over a decade, building strategic partnerships with the government, multilateral organizations, NGOs and foundations, as well as both traditional and social media influencers in promoting global health and social justice.
Andre first honed his ability to establish trusting relationships and convey complex issues effectively through teaching at a high school and at a private education organization in the earlier stage of his career. Through more recent interactions with global health organizations as a consultant, he became passionate about making a positive impact as a “bridge” to connect China with the world to achieve health for all.
In early 2016, Andre founded Bridge Consulting – a mission-driven, issue-based strategy and communications consultancy part of the wider New York-headquartered Global Health Strategies network – which helps clients achieve their long-term goals in China while advancing public good through communication and collaboration. Since its inception, Bridge Consulting has served clients such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; Jack Ma Foundation; World Health Organization (WHO); Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance; World Wildlife Fund (WWF); Global Partnership for Education (GPE); China Merchants Group; and Global Health Drug Discovery Institute (GHDDI).
