During his tenure he developed new revenue initiatives, established KPIs and commission structures, and implemented a large scale restructuring of the team and their compensation packages to make Xi’an one of the most competitive branches in the market. He went on to become a managing partner of China Strategies, LLC. Purzycki earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Finance and Chinese from University of Delaware’s Lerner College of Business and Economics.
