Nortel has appointed Jackson Wu as the new president for China. Wu was previously previously head of a former Nortel joint venture, Tong Guang-Nortel in Shenzhen. Before joining Nortel in 1993, Wu was president of Datacraft Ltd. in Taiwan. It looks as though he is replacing Robert Mao, who had been head of Nortel’s Chinese unit since 1997.
