Dave Jones, Growing The Innovation Ecosystem With Care

Dave Jones is the President of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) Asia, primarily responsible for SVB’s Asia business, including China joint venture bank, SPD Silicon Valley Bank.


Dave has lived and worked in Shanghai for almost six years now. He has brought with him the dream of Silicon Valley and an inspirational leadership style to get his staff to buy into that dream. His desire to make a great place even greater has led to rapid growth of the business.


He has been honored with not one but two Magnolia awards, once in 2016 and again in 2018, for his work in building the city’s innovation ecosystem. We wish that both his good work and the success he sees from it can continue on for years!
