2 Foster Partners is China s leading, independently owned, Executive Search and Consulting firm with over 20 Years experience in dealing with corporations ranging from small-niche Companies to world leading Fortune 500 Companies. 20 years after its inception, Foster Partners continues to successfully, and consistently, perform senior position searches for our clients from an ever growing range of industry segments. You are invited to learn more about us in the following pages.

3 HISTORY Foster Partners was established as the successor to KPMG Peat Marwick s U.S. Executive Search practice. KPMG Peat Marwick began offering executive search services in 1962 and developed over the course of 27 years to be the largest of the public accounting executive search practices. In 1989, Peat Marwick LLP, in the interest of client independence, elected to divest the firm s executive search practice to a buy-out group led by Dwight E. Foster, partner-in-charge of the U.S. executive search practice. On January 2nd, 1990, Foster Partners officially began operations. Successively, in order to further develop and manage its executive search business in Asia, Foster Partners Asia was formed in 1999 and has grown to include offices throughout Asia, including China and Malaysia. In 2006, Foster Partners took the next step and evolved the practice, moving its global headquarters to Shanghai, PRC to better service clients entering the China market. Drawing from a long heritage of excellence, today Foster Partners is one of the world s leading executive recruitment firms.

4 CLEANTECH & RENEWABLE ENERGY In recent years, China has started to revolutionize its energy industry by investing billions of dollars into wind power and solar energy companies as it recognizes the importance of these segments for its future; both in terms of the huge business growth potential and for the long lasting benefits for the environment. Thanks to the work with our clients and network, Foster Partners is at the heart of this new era in China s energy industry. With clients throughout the supply chain network of these key segments, Foster Partners has more through-and-through experience and knowledge than any other Executive Recruitment company in China. Government policies and investment have transformed China into one of the world s leading adopters and manufacturers of Renewable Energy technology. Ambitious renewable energy targets and strategic government investment have helped China become a world leader in renewable energy manufacturing and power generation. In 2010, China surpassed the U.S. to become the world s largest wind power producer with 44.7 GW of installed capacity. China renewable energy manufacturers produce more solar photovoltaic panels and wind turbines than any other country.

5 SOLAR China plans to boost solar capacity 20-fold by 2020, from 800 MW in 2010 to more than 20 GW, including more development in western China, with technologies beyond the crystalline silicon (c-si PV) solutions China has favored so far. Already the world leader in solar panel manufacturing, China is poised to enter a new phase: developing domestic solar power generation capacity. In early concession rounds, western regions have been favored for large-scale projects using primarily domestically produced crystalline silicon PV panels. As technology and power generation costs decline, it is likely that China will install a mix of solar technologies to achieve its 2015 and 2020 solar power generation targets. China is reconsidering its energy targets in the wake of Japan s nuclear crisis, which may increase solar power targets further to 10 GW by 2015 and 30 GW by WIND POWER As a new government priority, China s offshore wind market is poised for takeoff. China s offshore wind market only began in 2009 with the construction of its first offshore wind farm near Shanghai, but government targets call for swift growth to 30 GW by Offshore wind capital costs in China are expected to be at least double onshore costs, yet the first concession round held in 2010 for four projects totaling 1 GW resulted in low bid prices insufficient, it appears, for profitable ownership. These projects may be subsequently awarded higher tariffs by the government to ensure profitable operation, just as with early onshore wind farms. Given policy and technical uncertainties, the current market does not suit risk-averse developers. For foreign equipment and service providers, the market may be favorable, but due to pricing constraints there may be limited opportunities for foreign turbine manufacturers.

6 STRENGTHS Foster Partners prides itself on developing and maintaining a close, value-added partnership with our clients. Through analyzing and knowing our clients needs and conducting thorough research, Foster Partners assists our clients achieve a competitive advantage and realize their performance objectives through the recruitment of exceptional leaders and managers. Understanding our clients business needs is as critical as understanding the business environment in China. With emphasis on maintaining open and bon-going communications, and capitalizing on our high-quality research, Foster Partners is able to find the best fit senior business leaders for our clients. The candidates we present must not only have the expertise and the experience required, but must be compatible in character, location and culture that are unique to each of our clients.

7 EXPERTISE Foster Partners focuses on senior executive talent at a global, regional and national level for our clients and have completed assignments placing candidates in a variety of senior functional positions such as: President / CEO Finance Tax / Legal CSO Sales & Marketing Human Resources Operations / Manufacturing R&D Foster Partners has been my go to company for all of my recruitment needs for years. Their broad knowledge, experience and expertise in China make them invaluable. - James Rice, CEO Asia of Tyson Foods We came to Foster Partners needing to fill multiple high level positions in a short period of time and they were very efficient in presenting top level candidates quickly. They have proved to be a real asset in our agressive expansion into global markets. - Stephanie Yang Shao, Global Human Resources Director of Trina Solar In our 30+ years of working throughout Asia, and in particularly China, we have never come across a company with the depth of knowledge and understanding of the Chinese recruitment industry that matches Foster Partners. - Dennis Unkovic, Senior Partner of Meyer, Unkovic & Scott LLP With China s big push into renewable technologies in recent years, it was vital our company positioned itself with a China based senior executive recruitment company that met our high level of standards and experience for both ourselves and our clients. We found that link with Foster Partners. - Thomas Sauer, CEO of EXXERGY

8 CONDUCT Foster Partners goal is always to identify, develop and recruit the most qualified candidates for our clients.
