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.
