The Beijing office will serve as CPA Global's headquarters for Mainland China. The Company also has offices in Hong Kong and Taipei, providing a strong network across the Greater China region.

Song has more than 20 years' experience in management and strategic business leadership roles across several industry sectors, including financial and professional services and information technology.

CPA Global Chief Executive Officer Tim Griffiths said: "China's IP market is undergoing substantial and rapid expansion with increasing demand both from corporations and law firms for high-quality IP software and support services. Beijing is a key centre for IP as it is the headquarters for many of China's largest companies and leading law firms as well as the centre of government. Our new Beijing office strengthens our presence and further extends our reach in China, enabling us to deliver our IP management solutions more effectively to clients."

Commenting on Song's appointment, Marcos Antunes, CPA Global's regional head for Asia Pacific, commented: "I am delighted that Yifeng Song has joined us as General Manager for China. He has extensive business leadership experience in both the services and technology sectors in China, and will play a key role in developing our business and our relationships with clients."

Added Song: "I am excited to join CPA Global at such an important time in the development of the Chinese IP market. There are tremendous opportunities for CPA Global to provide IP management expertise to support the growth of China's innovation economy. I look forward to helping CPA Global expand our presence in China and build strong business relationships across the country."

Prior to joining CPA Global, Song was a consultant at PL Capital, a China-based private equity and asset management company. Previously, he worked at Thomson Reuters China in a series of management roles, most latterly as Managing Director for the Legal/Tax & Accounting business; and, before that, held senior positions with a number of other technology service providers.

The Beijing office - located in China Central Place in the city's Chaoyang central business district - will provide client service and sales support, backed by the full resources of CPA Global's extensive worldwide operations.
