Ping

Chairman / Executive Director

A mainland China-born executive with an enviable antiques collection, Dong has had multiple careers, from government official to chemicals trader to film producer. He headed ChinaVision, a listed company with media assets that included the Beijing Times, before selling it to Alibaba. At Huanxi Media, he has used equity to attach talent including Ning Hao, Wong Kar-wai and Zhang Yimou. Owning content and outsourcing distribution while retaining online rights makes Huanxi at once a lean operator and China’s sexiest streamer. Both Bilibili and ticketing giant Maoyan bought equity stakes in 2019-20, and when COVID-19 struck, Dong demonstrated his ability to turn on a dime, canceling a lucrative Chinese New Year release for “Lost in Russia” and instead spinning it into a streaming deal with TikTok parent ByteDance.
