On April 15th, it was reported that Guo Hongming, chairman of Taiwan's Hon Hai, said that he planned to resign as chairman in the next few months, and his resignation plan must be approved by the board of directors.
Foxconn said in response to the first financial reporter, "This is false news, Guo Dong just said that he hopes to retreat to the second line, so that young people focus on daily affairs, he is focused on strategic direction. ”
According to the reporter, Guo Taiming said in an event on April 15 that “the board of directors will draft a new list of directors in May.... Strengthen the management of the directors and minimize my personal color, exFii, SFARP. We have a Japanese team to operate Sharp well. Other new businesses, safe and healthy, not all are manufactured, have very strong teams. I invest in the future and set my direction for 45 years. Experience gives me some time to write a book to inherit and support other companies. The general direction of the company will still be guided by me, and I will retreat to the second line in daily operation. I feel that I should downplay my personal color. I am 69 years old. I have 45 years of experience to pass on to them. This is the goal I am setting now. Let young people learn to get up early and replace my position as soon as possible. I can free up. Take time to make long-term plans for the company's future. ”
According to the data, Guo Taiming was born in 1950 and is 69 years old. In 1985, he founded FOXCONN (Foxconn) own brand.
Guo Taiming is the absolute “overbearing president” of Foxconn.
Although the topic of successors has never stopped discussing, but in Guo Taiming's own words, "I have to talk about sticking to young people recently, but I can't easily retreat to the second line, or the stock price will fall tomorrow." ”
From a small factory in Xixiang, Xixiang, Shenzhen, it has grown into a “super-enterprise” with an annual income of nearly 900 billion yuan and 1.2 million employees. Guo Taiming created the “Foxconn model”, even the President of the United States. Trump also praised it as "the greatest businessman in the world".
Where there is meat, there are beasts; where there are flowers, there are bees; where there is opportunity, there is Guo Taiming.
Guo Taiming is often described as “Genghis Khan”, and he himself likes a story of Genghis Khan and a sentence he once said: “If a group of tigers are led by a sheep, then this group of tigers also becomes sheep. . ”
Guo Taiming said that he is willing to be the tiger. The classic book "Tiger and Fox" about him is always placed in the conspicuous place of the staff bookcase. The title of the book means that the actor has the flexibility of the fox and the temperament of the tiger. It is possible to be in the jungle. Survive.
Guo Taiming thinks that as a leader, there must be some domineering, because the person who makes decisions and is responsible for the success or failure of the decision is the leader. He believes in one sentence: There is no high-tech out of the laboratory, only discipline is enforced, discipline is at work, and everyone has to play a role.
For the managers with a slightly higher position in Foxconn, Guo Taiming is absolutely strict. He said: "The more fierce I am, the more likely it is the successor" “ The successor is definitely not the group that started my business, I am too close, I must be 20 years younger than me. ”
For employees, like usual meals, Guo Taiming also wants to ask. ” For employee benefits, Guo Taiming once told a story about buying Shenzhen chicken legs. “In order to eat chicken legs, I bought a big refrigerator, and my colleagues asked why you want to buy a refrigerator? I said that I have to buy it on Friday, and I can only divide one chicken leg on Saturday. We have not bought enough chicken legs in Shenzhen and Kunshan, and we have to buy ice. ” Guo Taiming said.
For the successor of the company, Guo Taiming said that he is thinking about his daily day and night, “Because of the need for artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) cross-disciplinary talents in the future, Hon Hai has started the cultivation of relevant talents. But at this stage, you can't tell them "you are the successor".
