Justine Chao

VP, Communications
Hong Kong



Justine Chao was named to the top communications role at Chinese tech giant Alibaba in 2021, capping a 14-year career with the company that has seen work across China and the USA. That level of experience no doubt stands Chao in good stead as she furthers Alibaba’s efforts in a sensitive geopolitical environment, which include its ambitious plan to reorganize along six main business lines.

Currently based in Hong Kong, Chao’s previous experience with Alibaba includes overseeing the company’s fashion and luxury business in North America, and serving in senior roles for the CEO’s office.
