How to use special title "总 zǒng" in business Chinese 如何在商务场合使用“总”头衔

2 years ago

There is one special title used frequently in business occasions in China, which is "总 zǒng".

In this situation, "总 zǒng" means "cheaf" or "head". It is a short form general manager, chief director, CEO, CFO, president of a company, chairman of the board, etc.

It is used after people last name. Sometimes, although the person is only in charge of a very small section in company, he/she would probably be happy if you address him/her with the title of "总 zǒng" .
