After taking the president role on February 2, Chen will continue to be director of NetQin; however, he will no longer be independent director or take any part in the company's audit committee, compensation committee, and corporate governance and nominating committee.
To fill the vacancy, NetQin has appointed Ethan Hu as the company's independent director, chairman of audit committee, and member of compensation committee and corporate governance and nominating committee.
Chen became director of NetQin in July 2014. He is a California-licensed attorney and a counsel at PacGate Law Group. Chen received a juris doctor degree and a master's degree in biochemistry from the University of Iowa and a bachelor's degree from Peking University.
In addition, NetQin announced several other changes to the board of directors, including the resignation of Xu Zhou, Roland Wu and Max Yao from their positions as directors of the board. After the adjustments, the company's board will consist of seven directors and four of them are independent directors.
