Fraser White, a qualified lawyer, founded and acted as managing partner of the Vietnam offices of the international law firm, Clifford Chance from 1993 to 1996. He was the managing partner of Clifford Chance in Shanghai, China, from 1996 to 2000 and thereafter he was counsel to the US-based law firm Altheimer & Gray.
During his more than 15 years of practicing law in Asia, Fraser acquired extensive knowledge of the Chinese education system, having advised several education institutions and investors on their establishment structures and operations in China. In 2003, in partnership with Dulwich College, he founded the first international Dulwich College in Shanghai, the first Education in Motion school.
Under his leadership, Education in Motion has grown to become a diverse family of schools, with a portfolio of leading education brands including Dulwich College International, Dulwich International High School, Dehong Education, Wo Hui Mandarin, Green School International and EiM Ventures.
Karen Yung is a co-founder of Education in Motion. A graduate of Santa Clara University in California with a BSc. in Economics, Karen got her start in education in Hanoi, Vietnam, where she earned her Montessori Teaching Diploma and opened the Rainbow International Pre-school to offer an option for her children and expats just moving into the burgeoning Hanoi economy.
In 1997, a move to Shanghai saw Karen working first with the American Chamber of Commerce as the US Consulate Liaison and then as the Executive Director for the British Chamber of Commerce. However, a lack of good international schools prompted Karen to create an option for her three children. With her husband, Fraser White, Karen embarked upon a partnership with Dulwich College – the beginning of the journey that has today grown into the Education in Motion global family of schools.
