NetEase’s board will steer growth and innovation.
We are happy to have Grace join our board, said NetEase CEO and Director William Ding. She is the ideal match for our board and our company due to her extensive skills in accounting, finance, and business management, as well as her highly-respected career marked by her dedication and thoroughness.
Grace’s onboarding marks a significant achievement in our ongoing efforts to improve and diversify our corporate governance.
We value our directors’ critical contributions, and we are certain that the new board team will continue to lead NetEase’s growth and innovation.
