"We're pleased to announce that Shuang has been promoted as the COO from his previous position as a Vice President at Phoenix TV. This appointment recognizes Shuang's great leadership, exceptional execution capability, and significant contributions to Phoenix group's growth over the past decade," said Mr. Keung Chui, Chairman of the Board of Directors of ifeng and the executive director and deputy chief executive officer of Phoenix TV.

Moving ahead, Shuang will maintain senior management positions in both of the companies, where he will be able to further strengthen this mutual relationship and cooperation. Shuang's proven expertise and leadership will help Phoenix TV and ifeng to achieve greater synergy together in terms of program productions, advertising sales and cross marketing promotional initiatives."
