Sarah Kutulakos joined the Canada China Business Council in 2007 and has revitalized CCBC’s role as Canada’s premier bilateral trade and investment organization by reinvigorating the Council’s mandate to support more and better business between Canada and China. Under her leadership, membership has more than doubled, and the Council has added three new chapters, growing to seven across Canada and in China.
Prior to CCBC, Sarah worked for 11 years in marketing, product development, and management with Eastman Kodak Company, where she had multiple assignments involving China. Sarah has led both established and start-up businesses within the context of a global corporation and has broad emerging market business experience. She has been involved in the Greater China region since the late 1980’s when she lived and worked in Taiwan and gained a deep understanding of Chinese business practices at a high-tech startup firm.
A fluent Mandarin speaker, Sarah has an MBA from the Simon School of Business at the University of Rochester. She frequently speaks on China issues, including marketing, trade, investment, and Canada-China relations.
