Yifei Li
Another key GLG executive has been given a senior Asian role at parent company Man Group in a further signal of the publicly listed group’s drive to expand its business in Asia.

Yifei Li, who worked at GLG prior to Man’s acquisition of the firm in October 2010, has been appointed as chairman of Man China. The move follows Man’s earlier appointment of GLG co-founder Pierre Lagrange as chairman of Man Asia.

Li, who has 18 years of senior management experience, has helped in the expansion of several multinational companies in China.
