Statement: Caixin Media Names New Editor-in-Chief
To meet the demands of its strategic development, Caixin Media has recently announced several key personnel changes to its upper management.
Wang Shuo has been appointed editor-in-chief of Caixin Media and editor-in-chief of Caixin Weekly. Wang, who was Caixin Media’s managing editor, succeeds company founder Hu Shuli, who will continue to serve as the company’s publisher, responsible for business transformation, strategic development and major decision-making.
The transition has been in the works for a while. Hu has been both publisher and editor-in-chief of Caixin from the company's founding. In recent years she has spent increasing time on the company’s strategic development, including setting up Caixin Insight and Caixin Global. She has also been guiding Caixin’s efforts to become China’s first subscription-based media outlet. The transition will allow her to focus on Caixin’s business development from a higher level.
In other moves, Zhang Jiwei was named deputy chief editor of Caixin Media and editor-in-chief of Caixin.com; and Ling Huawei was appointed managing editor of Caixin Media and managing editor of Caixin Weekly.
Yang Daming, the former deputy chief editor of Caixin Media, was named deputy publisher. Yang Zheyu, editorial editor of Caixin Weekly, takes over the post of editor-in-chief of China Reform, succeeding Yang.
