Jack Ma, the co-founder and executive chairman of Chinese e-commerce behemoth 阿里巴巴 Group is retiring, The New York Times has reported.
Mr Ma said he plans to step down as executive chairman on Monday to pursue philanthropy in education. He will remain on 阿里巴巴's board of directors.
“There's a lot of things I can learn from Bill Gates. I can never be as rich, but one thing I can do better is to retire earlier,” Mr Ma said in the interview. “I think some day, and soon, I'll go back to teaching. This is something I think I can do much better than being CEO of 阿里巴巴.
阿里巴巴's empire today encompasses online selling and banking, film production and cloud computing. It also holds stakes in Chinese social media site Weibo and owns English-language newspaper The South China Morning Post.
In an interview with Bloomberg TV, Mr Ma said he will be dedicating more of his time to philanthropy with the creation of a foundation in his own name focused on education, following in the footsteps of Bill Gates.
“I've prepared a Jack Ma Foundation,” he added. “All these things that I've been preparing for 10 years.”
Mr Ma was born in September 1964 in Hangzhou, the capital of China's Zhejiang province. It was here that he attended Hangzhou Normal University and graduated in 1988 with a BA in English before creating the 阿里巴巴 Group, backed by $60,000 (￡46,000) from 18 co-founders.
The company broke records in 2015 when its online sales and profits surpassed all US retailers, including Walmart, eBay and 亚马逊 combined.
