Founder Jack Ma withdraws from Alibaba in a year’s time




Founder Jack Ma stops in a year as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Alibaba. A few years ago he laid down his position as director of the company. The resignation of Ma is part of the plan for succession within the company.

Ma will remain in office for a year as chairman and after that he will be a regular member of the Board of Management at least until 2020. He writes in a letter that published Business Insider . Daniel Zhang will succeed him as chairman of the Board of Directors of the e-commerce company from China. The step coincides with the 20th anniversary of the company.

The founder set the plan to prepare a successor ten years ago for fear that the company would disintegrate after his disappearance. Alibaba is one of China’s largest tech companies and is known in the Benelux for, among other things, AliExpress, where Chinese traders can offer their goods to consumers from all over the world.
