tiktok news

ByteDance, the company that owns social short-video platform TikTok, has officially named Julie Gao, a Hong Kong based capital markets attorney and former senior partner at the law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, as their new chief financial officer, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Gao is slated to join ByteDance in May, according to Reuters.

Additionally, Gao has advised on ByteDance’s recent acquisitions of Musical.ly, which has since been integrated into TikTok, and the Shanghai-based gaming studio Moonton.

ByteDance’s former CFO Shou Zi Chew stepped down back in March of 2021 to focus on being TikTok’s CEO.

The boom of the TikTok app continues, especially as more TikTok content creators continue to make mainstream impact, and with the marked rise in influencer marketing over the last few years in particular.
