Mike Bellamy is the author of The Essential Reference Guide to China Sourcing, owner of PassageMaker Sourcing Solutions (www.PSSchina.com) and Chairman of the (not-for-profit) China Sourcing Information Center (www.ChinaSourcingInfo.org). Board member at Chibridge law firm and Asia Quality Focus, Mr. Bellamy moved to Asia in 1993 and has been based full-time in Shenzhen since 1999.
Recognized as an expert on China sourcing, Mike has been interviewed by the Financial Times, quoted on CNBC, and is a featured presenter for a number of high profile seminars and trade shows including Global Sources China Sourcing Fairs (HK, Shanghai, Dubai, Miami, Mumbai, Johannesburg), Boat Tech China, Rotary Foundation, US/British/French/Belgium/Luxemburg & German Chambers of Commerce, National Association of Purchasing Managers/Institute for Supply Management, Small Business Development Bureau, and the State Bar of California, among others.
Before the 2nd printing of The Essential Reference Guide to China Sourcing, Mike wanted its quality to match and reflect the quality and professionalism of his own work and career. As he explains, “Marc and his team were both professional and affordable. Before coming to Edit911, I hired a freelancer online for my book editing. That was a mistake as my first book went to print with spelling and formatting errors that forced me to reduce the price to liquidate my initial stock. It was a nightmare. When it came time for the second print run, I decided to do things right and find the best book editing service in the world. So I did my due diligence and after an exhaustive search, I hired Edit911. My only regret is not having found them sooner. There’s no doubt that I will use Edit911 for everything I write after this great experience with them. ”
Mike received his double degrees in Diplomacy and Economics in Washington DC and later went on to gain an International MBA from the University of South Carolina, which included a year of full-time graduate level courses at the Harbin Institute of Technology and University of International Business and Economics in Beijing. Mike also has worked with The Brock Group, an international trade and investment consulting firm managed by President Reagan’s former US Trade Representative and US Senator Bill Brock in Washington DC. After moving to China in 1993, Mike structured sourcing investments in over 250 production classifications for numerous clients.
Having mastered the China Intellectual Property (IP) and Quality Control monsters, Mike decided to develop the PassageMaker “Black Box Quality Gate” system (www.PSSchina.com) to extract the best pricing in China and protect IP without compromising quality and service. PassageMaker’s 100% US owned and operated Assembly Center in S. China serves as the client’s “black box” where inspection, final assembly, and branding takes place behind closed doors. In this fashion, Intellectual Property is physically secured and full quality inspection is conducted before product leaves China.
Edit911 is honored and excited to be working with Mike, a truly distinguished and successful international entrepreneur and businessman.
