In the last 10 days of 2020, Liu Qiangdong made two moves to make lightning adjustments to the head of JD Digital and JD Logistics.Two old ministers, either quit or stay away from the front line.
Since the establishment of Zhongguancun, Jingdong team has entered the era of 4.0, but one thing has not changed, that is, under the governance of Liu Qiangdong, Jingdong has never been “No. 2”.
Business “Suren” in charge of logistics and financial sector, it is difficult to fight against the division.After the turbulent Pinduoduo, Xu Lei in Jingdong looks like a rock, if one day suddenly quit, in fact, it will not be surprising.
This reveals an important signal to the outside world, JD Group as a holding company, its retail, logistics and financial sectors as three pillars, has become a climate.At the same time, Liu Qiangdong as the group’s helmsman, his three generals formed the “iron triangle” pattern.
Although Dada Group and Jingdong Health were listed earlier, Dada Group was not actually controlled by Jingdong, while Jingdong Health was more like the business spun off by Jingdong Mall. Therefore, CEO Kuai Jiaqi and Xin Lijun failed to form the “Five Tigers” together with “Iron Triangle”.
However, this pattern did not last long and finally collapsed in the last 10 days of 2020.
On December 21, 2020, as proposed by JD Group and approved by the board of directors of JD Digital, Chen Shengqiang was appointed as the vice chairman of JD Digital and chief of staff of JD Group.Ten days later, Mr Wang left.
Wang, a former executive at Lenovo Group and Eternal Asia, joined JD.com in April 2010.In April 2017, JD Group established JD Logistics, and Wang Zhenhui, then senior vice president of JD Group and head of JD Mall’s operation system, became the CEO of JD Logistics.He left to run JD Logistics for about three and a half years.
Chen has been following Liu Qiangdong, and his departure comes against a backdrop of the suspension of Ant Group’s IPO, regulatory efforts to crack down on Internet finance, and criticism of JD Finance for alleged discrimination in advertising at a sensitive time.Look optimistically, Chen is rising and falling, or Liu is protecting him from the storm.Although Jingdong Digital submitted its prospectus, the listing process seems to have pressed the pause button due to changes in the environment, which also provided more time for Liu Qiong Dong to overhaul Jingdong Digital.
Wang Zhenhui resignation is without warning, the “personal reasons” in the workplace behind the tacit agreement, is an unknown story.Is it because the logistics business has not developed as expected, or because there is a serious disagreement with Liu Qiangdong that makes it impossible to work together?
The market predicts that in 2021, Jingdong Logistics will also land in the capital market.As a senior manager, Mr Wang has been at JD for more than 10 years.Even as the leader of the logistics sector, he has been at the helm for more than three years. Referred to Chen Shengqiang’s shareholding of more than 4% of JD Digital Science, Wang Zhenhui originally obtained financial freedom through the logistics IPO.
Different from Ma Yun in Alibaba B2B listing after the 18 Arhat “cup of wine release the right to military”, Jingdong Logistics is planning to go public, Liu Qiangdong at this time “cut Fan Fan”, Wang Zhenhui failed to complete the listing bell ringing ceremony – belongs to the career of the high moment, is also the ambition unpaid.
