Ge Su co-founded Vermilion Partners in 2004. He has been advising international companies on establishing or developing their activities in China since 1992. Prior to joining Vermilion he served as a Director of Batey Burn, a leading China advisory firm, where he managed transactions in the light industrial, financial services and agrochemicals sectors. Ge Su’s experience spans formulating strategies, identifying investment opportunities, evaluating potential partners, conducting feasibility studies and due diligence investigations, negotiating joint ventures and acquisitions, recruiting key managers and advising on government relations issues. His projects have ranged from direct investments by multinational companies to purely financial investments by overseas funds. He continues to play an advisory role in joint ventures he has helped establish and sits on the boards of a number of foreign-invested joint ventures.

Before joining Batey Burn, Ge Su completed an internship with ICI, which sponsored his MBA and employed him upon graduation. At ICI he negotiated ICI-Swire Paint Co. Ltd., ICI’s first joint venture in China. From 1983 to 1988, Ge Su worked at Beijing Agricultural University, serving initially as international project manager and later as deputy director of the National Training and Application Centre for Agricultural Remote Sensing. He also undertook teaching and national research projects and attended a graduate programme in soil science and physiography.

Ge Su obtained a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from the Beijing Language and Culture University. He also holds an MBA from the China-Europe Management Institute (now the China-Europe International Business School) and speaks fluent English. Ge Su is based in Beijing.
