Zhaopin is an online recruitment website and a leading HR service provider in China. Originally started as a headhunting firm in 1994, Zhaopin accumulated significant experience and numerous high profile clients in the HR field, helping companies like Siemens, Microsoft and Nokia establish and ramp up operations in the ever-important China market.
The company was co-founded by Mark Baldwin (now with Oxus China, a Bernard Hodes partner) and Steven Chiu (who subsequently worked for The Economist Group). The current CEO, Hao Liu, was previously with Orchid Asia Holdings, a Silicon Valley venture capital firm. Zhaopin closed a $110 million round of funding in July, 2008.
