Chris Shea, Asia-Pacific Sales Director

Chris Shea

Early on in Chris’s working career Engineering played an important role. After studying Mechanical Engineering at college he went on to become a Service Manager for a large UK Agricultural Equipment Distributor during which time he undertook external manufacturer training at different European locations.

After a number of years working with two large European machinery manufacturers, Chris decided he wanted the challenge of starting his own business and proceeded to set up what became a successful environmental services company, which 12 years later he sold to a large US multi-National business.

Following a period of semi-retirement in 2012 Chris was tempted back to business working with a Chinese company that started to develop plastic musical instruments, much of his time there was devoted to product development and brand building.

In 2016 Chris was offered the opportunity of joining Warwick Music Ltd which he accepted without hesitation and has since been involved once again with new product development and latterly, utilising his experience in sales and the music industry, becoming the Asia & Pacific Region Sales Director.

Chris now lives and works from the WMG base in China and is married with two young children whom he says are multi-lingual and can speak far better Chinese than himself.
