30 September, 2022

Mumbai, India September 30, 2022: ADP, a leading global technology company providing human capital management solutions, today announced the appointment of Jessica Zhang to Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific Region (APAC), effective immediately. Ms. Zhang joins the Senior Leadership Team of ADP Employer Services International President Virginia Magliuglo.

In this role, Ms. Zhang will be responsible for driving strategic growth and operational excellence throughout this fast growing and dynamic region of APAC. Based in Singapore, she will be accountable for developing talent, expanding ADP’s footprint in the region, and accelerating the introduction and growth of the company’s newest solutions in APAC. The appointment follows outgoing President APAC Peter Hadley being named global Corporate Treasurer.

Ms. Zhang joined ADP in 2007 as VP, Finance and Accounting for China. In 2018, after taking on two additional leadership roles as CFO China and then CFO APAC, Ms. Zhang was promoted to General Manager, North Asia. For the past four years, she has led the business to achieve significant revenue growth and built a strong and diverse leadership team in North Asia. She has also led demanding projects, including the successful management of the safety and support of ADP clients and associates at the outbreak of COVID.

“While the rest of the world was grappling with payroll processes during the pandemic, Jessica was already aligning her teams to run payroll for our clients 100% from home; something we had never previously imagined would be possible”, said Ms. Magliulo.

Ms. Zhang’s other notable achievements include setting up ADP’s Centre of Excellence in Wuxi, China, to support business growth and expansion, and driving productivity improvements, business process enhancements and digital transformation.

“Innovation is in ADP’S DNA and I’m honoured to be leading the charge in APAC to execute the company’s strategy for growth and value creation for clients,” said Ms. Zhang.

“Jessica’s leadership skills and track record with our clients and associates will be an invaluable addition, as we grow the ADP brand in the region,” added Ms. Magliulo.

Before joining ADP, Ms. Zhang held a number of financial and general management leadership roles in large multinational corporations such as the Bristol-Myers Squibb.
