Lately, China’s tech and internet behemoths have been attracting big-league talents from Western companies, another sign of their growing global ambition and clout.
A former Google pioneer on artificial intelligence joined Chinese search engine Baidu, as did a top Microsoft China executive. A PepsiCo exec left for e-commerce giant Alibaba.
The latest to make the switch comes from the ad world and is one of the most respected China-based media agency talents. Steven Chang has traded his job as president of Publicis Groupe’s’ ZenithOptimedia Greater China for a new post as corporate VP for online media advertising sales at Tencent, the Chinese internet giant said Thursday.
