ZoZo Go LLC, a Dunne Automotive company, has opened new offices in San Diego, California. San Diego marks ZoZo Go’s third location, joining operations in Hong Kong and Shanghai.
ZoZo Go advises global auto companies, tech firms and investors on opportunities in the China-electric-autonomous markets.
“The global auto industry is experiencing its greatest upheaval since Henry Ford, with innovation concentrated in the powerful California-China corridor,” said ZoZo Go CEO Michael Dunne. “ZoZo Go is at the nexus, perfectly positioned to help our clients capitalize on new opportunities.”
The company’s new name, ZoZo Go, reflects the massive reshaping of the global auto industry driven by two forces: China and mobility. “ZoZo” in Chinese means “to move, to run, to get from here to there.”
According to ZoZo Go research, there are already 59 Chinese-funded automakers, suppliers and auto-tech companies operating in the United States. More than a dozen Chinese auto-tech firms including Didi and Baidu run world-class R&D operations at expansive offices in California. These companies have invested billions of dollars and employ thousands.
“The first Chinese car brands will enter the US market in 2019 with several others following by 2021,” said Dunne. “Companies should be preparing for coming opportunities right now.”
CEO Michael Dunne has deep roots in Asia, having lived and worked there since 1990 when he founded his first company, Automotive Resources Asia. He then served as CEO of J.D. Power in China and was later named President of General Motors operations in Indonesia until 2015.
