China Investor Hires Hedgie CEO

Jan 26 2012 | 1:18am ET

Seeking a leader, Rotoblock Corp., has turned to the hedge fund industry.

The California company, which invests in emerging technology opportunities in China, named Andrew Schneider CEO. Schneider last year founded Global Hedge Fund Advisors, after stops at HedgeCo Networks, Morgan Stanley and Prudential Securities.

Schneider succeeds Chien Chi Liu, who remains on Rotoblock’s board of directors.

“The opportunity to gain market-entry into China with such a breakthrough environmental technology is a win-win,” Schneider said.

Last year, Rotoblock bought daifuWaste, a medical waste disposal company based in Beijing.
