Ren Runhou (October 1957 – September 30, 2014) was a Chinese business executive and politician from Shanxi Province. He was the chief executive of Lu'an Group, a state-owned coal production company based in Shanxi, for over ten years beginning in June 2000. He became the Vice Governor of Shanxi in January 2011.
He was investigated by the Communist Party of China's internal disciplinary body in 2014, joining many officials from Shanxi who were dismissed from their posts amid corruption investigations. He died from cancer in September before a verdict had been reached on his case.
In September 1998 he became the vice-president of Shanxi Institute of Energy, a position he held until June 2000, when he was transferred to Changzhi as the president of Lu'an Group (Chinese: 潞安集团).
On August 29, 2014, Ren Runhou was being investigated by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Communist Party of China for "serious violations of laws and regulations". Ren succumbed to cancer in September 2014, before a verdict had been reached on his case, but the investigation into his misconduct continued. On April 13, 2015, the CCDI announced the results of the investigation into Ren. The agency said that Ren took and gave bribes, took cash gifts, and embezzled public funds. The CCDI then posthumously expelled Ren from the Communist Party of China.
