Mr. Saul Gitlin

Senior Director – China
Mount Sinai International
To support Mount Sinai’s ongoing China business development, Saul Gitlin serves as the Mount Sinai International Senior Director for China, leading existing partner relationships and spearheading new business growth in the People’s Republic of China, and the Greater China region.
Saul joined Mount Sinai after a 35+ year career that has been focused on business development in China, Greater Asia, and within Asian ‘diaspora’ communities. In 1982, as a Cornell University student majoring in Chinese Studies, Saul was part of the ‘earliest wave’ of American undergraduates to study as an exchange student for a full-year in the People’s Republic of China (at Fudan University in Shanghai) following the establishment of diplomatic relations between the United States and China. After receiving his MA in East Asian Studies from Yale in 1985, Saul returned to China where he resided for almost a decade working in senior Business Development, Strategy, Sales, and Marketing positions for American, European, and Middle Eastern multinational companies across a broad range of industrial and consumer industries. Prior to joining Mount Sinai, Saul also served for 17 years as Executive Vice President and Managing Director for the WPP Group’s Asian multicultural marketing and communications agency - Kang & Lee - leading the development of brand strategy and communications for Fortune-500 clients seeking to drive business growth within the burgeoning Chinese immigrant communities across the USA and Canada. During this tenure, he developed deep healthcare category expertise, working heavily with both top-ranked managed-care and pharmaceutical client brands, including Oxford, UnitedHealthcare, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, GSK, Roche, Novartis, Gilead Sciences, AstraZeneca, Merck, and Pfizer, among others. Saul also served as Senior Vice President for Global Strategy in China for the Interpublic Group’s (IPG) Mediabrands unit. As a recognized authority on international and cross-cultural business development, marketing, and communications, Saul has been heavily quoted and published in both offline and online media in the USA and abroad, including The New York Times, The Huffington Post, Bloomberg, Sina.com, and a wide range of industry-specific trade outlets. He is completely fluent in both spoken and written Chinese, and also holds an MBA from Columbia University Business School.
