CEO

Liang was handed the reins of Tencent Music Entertainment (TME) in April 2021 when Cussion Pang transitioned to chairman of the board, putting big responsibilities on Liang’s shoulders. TME is the leading music streamer in China with four mobile music apps (QQ Music, Kugou Music, Kuwo Music, WeSing) and a total of more than 800 million users. The company launched an IPO in the U.S. in 2018 that raised $1.1 billion, and it has stakes in Warner Music Group, Universal Music Group, virtual concert platform Wave, Stockholm-based Spotify and British data-driven A&R platform Instrumental. While TME cited 71 million paid users across TME’s services in Q3 2021, a 37% year-over-year increase, net profits and monthly users dropped amid heightened regulation of the tech sector throughout China.
