David Jian immigrated to the U.S. from China in 1995 to pursue a Master’s degree in professional accountancy. After graduating, he received the opportunity to work for PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC), one of the biggest four accounting firms in the world, for five years. The training and experience he gained at a big firm combined with his passion and perseverance shaped him into a successful entrepreneur and leader. Now, he is the CEO Marketing Director of World Financial Group, a financial service marketing company whose affiliates offer a broad array of financial products and services in the United States and Canada.

More than a decade ago, Jian started his financial services business from scratch and has grown it steadily in the past years. Under his strong leadership, the business successfully spread its operations to multiple states and now has more than one thousand licensed associates in the U.S.

Even with his busy work schedule, Jian always remembers to give back to his community. He sponsored underprivileged students and donated school supplies to a village school in Hunan, China. Along with his wife, Laura, he supports Global Health Action, a non-profit organization aiding left-behind children in China. He strongly believes in education and hard work, which have changed his life and led him to pursue his American Dream. Years of experience also allowed him to realize that many young Asian Americans need more training and opportunities to develop leadership skills so that they can become the future leaders of this country. This notion sparked his desire to begin his work with ILF. In 2014, he founded the Atlanta chapter. The establishment of the Atlanta chapter allows him to more directly impact young Asian Americans in his community.

Currently, Jian resides in Johns Creek, Georgia with his wife, Laura, and his two daughters, Kathryn and Ashley. In his free time, he enjoys reading, traveling, and meeting new people.
