Jean added: "I am incredibly excited to be joining the FreemanXP office in London. The EMEA team is comprised of some very talented individuals, and I can't wait to re-acquaint myself with the European culture and community. I thoroughly enjoyed my time working for FreemanXP in Shanghai, and look forward to continuing my relationship with Freeman here in London."
