Mr. Jack Z. Chen is the Founder and CEO of Transworld Capital Group. He has over 16 years of experience in managing complicated cross-border M & A transactions that involve Western and Chinese companies.

The Nexteer Automotive transaction followed the 2009 acquisition of Delphi Corporation's braking and suspension unit by a similar Beijing-based consortium, in which Mr. Chen also acted as an advisor.
