I’m passionate about executive recruitment as it is what helps companies grasp market trends, respond to challenges, and clarify their strategic direction.

Susan Mao is a Page Executive Principal who works strategically to find senior profiles for energy (change to Automotive), industrial and tech firms in China.

Prior to her recruitment career, Susan held consultancy roles in the tech and manufacturing industries. This experience laid the foundations for the market insight she exercises today in executive search. Consequently, her transition to recruitment in 2016 (Change to 2012) came naturally, and she quickly began managing a client portfolio of MNC industrial, semiconductor and graphic processing unit manufacturers across Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and the wider Asia Pacific region.

With an impressive understanding of her sector, Susan made the jump to Page Executive in April 2023 to work exclusively with senior-level roles. Her talent lies in her ability to infuse her strategic insights and the latest market trends into every assignment, guiding her clients towards achieving their organisational goals. Susan’s sense of accomplishment stems from the success of the startups and market-leading manufacturers she collaborates with, fostering a real win-win partnership.

Susan’s vision is to offer a deluxe recruitment service by implementing elements of coaching into her approach. This methodology cultivates strong professional relationships built on trust, and clients regularly praise her vast industry knowledge and network. Transparency is the cornerstone of Susan’s executive search success, and her innate dedication keeps her focused from the beginning to the end of the recruitment process. 

Away from the pursuit of top-tier executives, Susan is an adventurer at heart. She is a keen traveller, loves hiking, and continually challenges her palate with new cuisines.
