Since taking the helm of Apple Inc’s China business two years ago, Ge

has been committed to building a vibrant local ecosystem. Her impressive tec

corporate job experience in the United States. She got a MBA from the University of California, Be

“Chinese software developers have grown to be a very admirable community of innovators and they上海品茶微信
