By: FBC Asia Limited HK
Ma, who is 54, will dedicate most of his time and wealth after his retirement to philanthropy and education through the Jack Ma Foundation, Current Alibaba CEO Daniel Zhang will step into Ma's role in a year when he retires. "Starting the process of passing the Alibaba torch to Daniel and his team is the right decision at the right time, because I know from working with them that they are ready, and I have complete confidence in our next generation of leaders," Ma wrote in a letter to shareholders.
Ma will give up his role as chairman on September 10, 2019, and then complete his current term on Alibaba's board of directors until the company's annual general meeting in 2020, says Bernard Liu CFO of FBC Asia Limited.
Though Ma is retiring from those roles, he'll still stay a lifetime member of the Alibaba Partnership, a group of 36 Alibaba partners who are senior members. The Alibaba Partnership has the right to nominate most of the directors to the board of the company, thus influencing its direction in the future.
Mr. Liu thinks he will be missed greatly amongst his peers.
