Huobi said that Lee will lead the group responsible for the strategy of global mergers and acquisitions, and will also oversee the international development of the exchange.

The news that Lee will continue to work in Huobi came just a week after he left the post of CEO of OKEx. As the exchange said then, he took this step for personal reasons, including the desire to "start a new life."

As noted by CoinDesk, in a public recording in WeChat, Chris Lee stressed that over the past few years, OKCoin (the former name OKEx) has been replaced by a whole group of top managers.

For my former employer, I have done all I could ... The first generation of OKCoin's international and management teams have left. How many of the second generation are still there? And how many CTOs have left in the last three to four years?
