Nearly 15 Years of Greater China Experience

Prior to joining Juwai.com, Pittar was Asia COO for Macquarie Bank. He has nearly 15 years of Greater China business experience and has also served as Australasia Managing Director for ONYX Software, a startup software vendor that completed a successful public listing in 2000. 

Mr. Pittar began his career at Microsoft, where he established the company’s operations throughout the Asia Pacific.

«On behalf of the entire Board, I congratulate Charles on this appointment he has more than earned it with his work as COO last year,» said Rupert Purser, Chairman of the Board.
