Our Leadership Team
AsiaAssist was founded by Jelmer de Jong and Jean-Paul Schmitz. Jelmer and Jean-Paul have spent much of their careers working in the e-commerce industry at one of the major e-commerce marketplaces in Europe. However, after studying in Hong Kong and South Korea, respectively, the duo uncovered the untapped potential of the Chinese e-commerce market.
Equipped with nothing but a backpack, they ventured to China with a single client believing in their vision. Founded in 2015 with a strong local team of experts and now managing over 15 brands in China.
Together, they have placed an extreme focus on customer satisfaction to create an e-commerce brand accelerator that’s truly successful. We work to guide our brand partners through scaling up while focusing on the happiness of the consumers who purchase their products.
