Lei Berger has been named managing director of Wilson Associates’ Shanghai office. In her previous position with the firm as vice president, China, Berger helped establish the Shanghai design studio in May 2016, and has since taken on additional responsibilities, including overseeing production and operations and leading the firm’s business development team in China.

Berger first joined Wilson in its Dallas office 20 years ago as a designer, where she worked on concepts for clients such as Disney, Fairmont, Four Seasons, Ritz-Carlton, Sofitel and St. Regis. She relocated to Wilson’s Shanghai office in 2010.

“Lei’s ‘can-do’ attitude, strong design background and business network are integral to her success as a true leader and energetic force for Wilson’s expansion in the China market,” says Vincent Liew, a Wilson executive board member.
