Liu Qing (Chinese: 柳青; pinyin: Liǔ Qīng, born 1978 in Beijing) or Jean Liu, is a Chinese business executive. Liu is the President of Didi Chuxing ("DiDi", formerly known as Didi Kuaidi), China's largest mobile transportation platform.[2] She worked at Goldman Sachs Asia for 12 years, becoming a managing director in 2012, before switching to Didi Dache serving as its chief operating officer in July 2014.[3]

After joining Didi Dache, she led the strategic merger between Didi Dache and its main competitor Kuaidi Dache which then created a new car hailing company named Didi Kuaidi (later rebranded as Didi Chuxing) in 2015.[4]

Early life and education[edit]

Liu was born in 1978 in Beijing, China. She is the daughter of Chinese businessman and Lenovo founder Liu Chuanzhi, and the granddaughter of Liu Gushu, a senior executive banker at the Bank of China. She received a bachelor's degree in Computer Science at Peking University, and a master's degree in Computer Science at Harvard University.[5] She received an honorary Doctor of Commercial Science from New York University. [6]

Personal life[edit]

Liu currently lives in Beijing with her family. In October 2015, Liu announced internally that she was being treated for breast cancer at the age of 37.[7] In early December 2015, she posted on her Weibo that she would return to work by the end of December after a two-month treatment.[8] According to DiDi, she is now fine and "has been in all-in mode for quite some time".[9]

After being named one of the "50 Most Powerful Moms of 2016"[10] by Working Mother, Liu spoke about how she balanced working for DiDi with her relationship with her three kids.
