Xiaomi India announces leadership changes

Sagar, 03 June 2022

Xiaomi India today announced leadership changes for the next phase of growth as it reinforces its commitment to the Indian market.

Xiaomi has announced the appointment of Mr. Alvin Tse as the General Manager of the Indian branch, who previously led the company's business in Indonesia, which will now be headed by Mr. Wentao Zhao.

Tse is the founding member of Xiaomi Global and Poco, and post his transition, he will join hands with Xiaomi India's current leadership team comprising Mr. Muralikrishnan B (Chief Operating Officer), Mr. Raghu Reddy (Chief Business Officer), and Mr. Sameer BS Rao (Chief Financial Officer).

The trio has been leading the company's Indian business since Mr. Manu Jain - former Managing Director of Xiaomi India - transitioned to a global role as the Group Vice President and is currently responsible for Xiaomi's international strategy, including marketing and PR.

This leadership rejig also marks the return of Mr. Anuj Sharma to Xiaomi India as its Chief Marketing Officer, who moved to Poco in 2020 to lead its business in India.

These organizational changes at Xiaomi India come at a time when the brand is under scrutiny by the Indian government for breaching foreign laws. The country's Enforcement Directorate had also put Manu Jain under investigation and seized Xiaomi India's assets worth INR55.5 billion ($715 million at current exchange rates) in connection with the illegal outward remittances made by the company.

In response, Xiaomi India said that all their "operations are firmly compliant with local laws and regulations," and they are "committed to working closely with government authorities to clarify any misunderstandings."
