Manu Kumar Jain promoted as the Global Vice President of Xiaomi


Xiaomi has just announced that it has appointment Manu Kumar Jain, head of operations in India, as the Global Vice President of Xiaomi. Manu Kumar Jain also updated his profile with the new designation. If you remember, Hugo Barra left Xiaomi to head Facebook’s Oculus VR team last month. Manu Kumar Jain, who also happens to have co-founded Jabong few years ago, joined Xiaomi in June 2014.

Xiaomi today made the announcement on their Facebook page saying, “Under Manu’s leadership our operations in India expanded from just a small team, into India’s second largest smartphone vendor in the country with 10.7 percent market share, and the number one selling smartphone brand online with 29.3 percent market share in Q4CY16, as per IDC! Manu, congratulations from the entire Xiaomi family on your promotion to Vice President of Xiaomi!

Manu Kumar Jain, on his Facebook page, said,

Thank You my phenomenal Xiaomi family! I am so glad I got the opportunity to work with the best team on the planet. This further solidifies our plans to work harder to make our Mi Fans happy.

Truly honoured and humbled!
