Manu Kumar Jain Is Now a Vice President at Xiaomi

by CIO AXIS

Manu Kumar Jain who was leading Xiaomi’s India operations until now has been promoted to the Vice President of Xiaomi. The company confirmed the news on Friday.

The development comes after Hugo Barra, Xiaomi’s Global VP, announced his decision to leave the company last month.

In a tweet, Mi India -the official Twitter handle of Xiaomi India wrote, “manukumarjain, congratulations from the entire Xiaomi family on your promotion to Vice President of Xiaomi!” Apart from being the Vice President at the company, Jain will also be Managing Director, Xiaomi India. To recall, Manu Kumar Jain joined Xiaomi back in June 2014. Previously, he was with Jabong.

Though Jain led Xiaomi in India, it was Barra,¬†former Global Vice President,who was the face of the company at various events, and his exit was seen as a blow to the company’s prospects in international markets like India. Jain’s promotion is surely a signal that India will continue to be an important market for Xiaomi and that Jain will have a key role in maintaining Xiaomi’s momentum in the country that is Xiaomi’s biggest market outside of China with over $1 billion in sales last year.
