In his time at Yahoo!, Shen led or worked on deals and integrations across media, commerce, data, and marketing software, including Alibaba, Yahoo!

The winners have become lightning fast and ruthlessly efficient: they’re using software, services and data to radically improve the process. Retailers, manufacturers, and distributors of all sizes are developing a standard operating playbook for this new era of recommerce, and for many of the best run companies in the world, B-Stock has become an essential part of that playbook.”
