After losing millions of dollars in his thirties, Wen-Szu was forced to reset his career in a foreign country with no tangible assets, no job leads, and no proven corporate record. What he did have were untaught lessons on how to deliver, which Wen-Szu teaches in his latest book Deliver. The untaught lessons to growth hack your career.

Wen-Szu Lin is a Senior Director of Community Operations at Uber Technologies. Since 2014, Wen-Szu built, grew, and managed teams of thousands across Australia, New Zealand, India, North Asia, Southeast Asia (now part of Grab), and China (now part of Didi).

Before Uber, Wen-Szu was the China Master Franchisee for Auntie Anne’s Pretzels, opening 12 stores across 5 cities. The daunting and ultimately unsuccessful experience of launching an American concept in China was documented in Wen-Szu’s first book, The China Twist. Wen-Szu’s other professional experiences include being a management consultant, an engineer, and a short stint as a noodle chef.

Wen-Szu holds an MBA from the Wharton School of Business, an MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and a BS in Electrical Engineering from the University of Maryland. In his spare time, he enjoys jogging, tasting bourbons and wines, and investing in startups. He is married with two children and resides in Manila, Philippines.
