Tencent Music has a new boss, although he’s hardly a stranger to the company. Zhu ‘Ross’ Liang is taking over as chief executive of China’s music-streaming giant, with existing CEO Cussion Pang becoming chairman of the company’s board of directors. Liang was previously VP of Tencent Holdings, where his role included running social networks QQ and Qzone. However, between 2014 and 2016 he was general manager of QQ Music, one of Tencent Music’s three streaming services.
“Ross’ proven track record in building successful online entertainment platforms and social ecosystems, combined with his breadth of experience delivering strong results through successful expansion into new business areas, makes him ideally suited to accelerate our evolution into an all-in-one online music and audio entertainment destination in China,” said Pang.
