Ethan Shen

Senior Manager, Project Execution Asia, China

I’ve worked in Evac’s Shanghai office since 2014 and I’m now a head of project management. In this role I’m responsible for leading a team to deliver Evac’s cleantech solution through our global project process. When I joined the company as a project manager, we were expanding our offering from equipment to solutions, which gave me the opportunity to work with cross-functional, talented teams to successfully execute projects for key customers.

I’ve since progressed to establishing a project execution team, enhancing our local project engineering competence by sharing my knowledge. I’m proud that we’re now able to handle complex projects, provide excellent solutions and customer service, and strengthen the Evac brand to help the company thrive in the Chinese market. It’s particularly rewarding to be contributing to the health of the planet through the significant impact of our projects on the marine environmental protection landscape. I also love that we’re encouraged to innovate with technology that further protects our planet.

My career highlight so far was when we received recognition from a customer for whom we provided a wastewater treatment system including two large sewage treatment plants. Right from the beginning, we had to put a lot of effort into helping the customer address complex challenges, including rearranging the sewage room with a customized design. The customer told us that no other company could provide such a high level of service, and this recognition encouraged me to continue improving.
