The Management Team
Qumin intends to be the global authority on Chinese digital marketing through continuous innovation in technology, consultancy and community engagement.
Our services team is built around our goal of having experts in each digital silo supported by bilingual account management.
It can be a challenge dealing with agencies in China due to a lack of transparency, quality and time and cultural differences. Our team of bilingual experts based in the UK and China can support and service clients in navigating the Chinese digital landscape.
David Reich - Chairman
David brings a wealth of experience from the full service media and international advertising sector. David has over 40 years of wide ranging experience in growing and developing media related businesses through both organic growth and acquisition on both the domestic and international stage.
In the early 1970’s David was a joint founder and director of TMD Advertising the UK’s first full service media specialist in the UK. As CEO and Chairman from 1974 onwards, David oversaw the growth and development of the firm from the initial 6 personnel up to its float on AIM in 1985. Further development to 5 separate companies and growth to 300 personnel culminated in the sale of the company to Aegis plc.
David then repeated the exercise, initially in 1995 as a director, and then as from 1997 as CEO of CIA plc, through organic growth and international acquisition prior to overseeing the contested bid process between Havas and WPP resulting in WPP’s successful final takeover offer of approximately 437 million pounds.
David, also holds a first class law degree and was a magistrate for 8 years. David’s experience has been extremely valuable in Qumin’s rapid growth and arguably far more successful than that of his favourite football team, Leyton Orient.
Arnold Ma - CEO
Arnold was born in China and moved to the UK in his early teens. Fascinated and passionate about technology from a young age he grew up building websites as a hobby. Since graduating with a BEng in Electronic Systems Engineering, Arnold has worked with blue chip companies within the digital marketing industry on both the client and agency side.
