AMTD Group Inc. Announces the Adoption of a Completely Independent and Non-Executive Board Structure and an Innovative CEO Rotation System Across the Group

PARIS & NEW YORK & SINGAPORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AMTD Group Inc. (“AMTD Group”), the controlling shareholder of AMTD IDEA Group (NYSE: AMTD; SGX: HKB) (“AMTD IDEA”) and AMTD Digital Inc. (NYSE: HKD) (“AMTD Digital”) today announced the introduction and adoption of an innovative system through which the CEOs of all of its operating companies and key subsidiaries, including AMTD IDEA and AMTD Digital, will be appointed by the Executive Management Committee (“EMC”) of the applicable entities on a rotational basis. This philosophy of shared leadership is reflected in the new feature which forms the core foundation of the rotating CEO mechanism. Under the new rotation program, no single individual would be appointed as the sole leader of an entity for an extended period, and a campaign of “everyone can be a hero” will be rolled out across the group to encourage and promote the next leaders of the companies. Through this rotation program, AMTD Group will maximize the values from the collective wisdom and stepped-up efforts to groom and nurture the next-level leaders.

By rotating the CEOs every six months, the group will be led by different personalities, which will create a much more diverse workplace where different common principles and perspectives will be consistently communicated and implemented. Due to the shared decision-making process and the grooming process to cultivate the next-level leadership, the long-term and sustainable interest of AMTD will be best served. Shared Values as the core mission of AMTD and key shareholders’ beliefs and practices will be implemented through the new structure and organization leadership.

Dr. Feridun Hamdullahpur, the independent chairman of AMTD IDEA commented, “The entire AMTD organization is built upon innovative thinking. We don’t just talk about it; we practise it all the time. We have evolved and matured by understanding the changing world a bit better and defying the status quo. The rotating CEO program is born out of such thinking, and I believe will bring renewed energy and inspiration for the long-term sustainability and growth of the group. We would not be where we are without their great work, dedication, and commitment. We will continue counting on the new leadership program to move us steadily forward and grow our impact gradually and concretely over time.”
