SAN FRANCISCO & BEIJING--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Blueshirt Group (“Blueshirt”), a leading investor relations and IPO advisory firm, announced today that it has established a presence in Beijing, China, marking its geographic expansion into Asia. With the launch of The Blueshirt Group Asia, the firm will enhance its ability to serve Asia-based companies listed on a U.S. exchange or considering a U.S. listing. Additionally, the Beijing office will provide local support for Blueshirt clients from the U.S. and Europe conducting investor-focused business in the region.
The Blueshirt Group Asia is led by managing director Gary Dvorchak, CFA. Dvorchak brings capital markets expertise gained from 20 years as an institutional portfolio manager as well as experience serving both Asian and U.S. clients as a senior investor relations consultant. Dvorchak also offers clients financial media insight from his role as a contributing writer for a variety of financial sites including TheStreet.com, Real Money and Real Money Pro.
The Blueshirt Group Asia provides a bilingual staff of local consultants with expertise in U.S. capital markets and continuous service covering both Asian and U.S. market hours. The new office brings clients in Asian markets the same qualities that make Blueshirt the industry’s leading growth-sector investor relations firm: unrivaled expertise, deep industry knowledge, established media relationships and senior level involvement.
“The high level of investor interaction between the U.S. and Asia, including the large number of China-based IPOs and the opportunity to leverage Gary’s unique experience, made Beijing a natural expansion for our firm,” said Alex Wellins, Blueshirt co-founder and managing director. “With 100 current clients and significant IPO experience, having guided more technology companies through the process than any other firm, Blueshirt has an unrivaled track record that includes some of the world’s leading growth companies. We are pleased to offer our expertise and proactive approach to new Asia-based clients while expanding our capabilities by providing a local presence to our current clients in this important market.”
“Blueshirt is the premier growth stock investor relations brand in the U.S., and I look forward to leading the expansion of the firm’s presence in Asia,” said Dvorchak. “My experience in China is meaningful, having provided investor and media relations advice to public and pre-IPO clients across Asia. As important, my family has special personal ties to China since, in 1985 as a young county government official, Chinese President Xi Jinping stayed with our family at our home in Iowa.”
Blueshirt’s expansion to Asia follows the recent launch of a heath care practice, complementing the firm’s presence in the technology, energy, industrial and consumer industries.
