For those of you wondering about who would be the first keynote speaker at TechCrunch Beijing Summit, now we are confident to say that you would not be disappointed, for it’s been confirmed that Scott Beaumont—Google China’s new head since last August, will do us this honor.

On July 15, 2013, Google announced that John Liu, the head of Google China at that time, would step down in mid-August, and Scott Beaumont — then head of Google’s partnership in Europe, would take over Liu’s place.

Beaumont has a rich history in telecommunication industry. Prior to joining Google in 2009, Beaumont was the CEO and Founder of mobile app company Refresh Mobile from 2005, and operated as the VP of T-Mobile from 2000 to 2005.
