I believe that with Wang Xiang s excellent leadership skills, over 20 years of experience in the industry, and close ties with players within the mobile ecosystem, he will be able to steer Xiaomi to the next level of success in strategic cooperation and establishing important partner relations, Xiaomi CEO and founder Lei Jun said in a statement. He was the one who successfully helped Qualcomm establish a strategic cooperation with Xiaomi, which has only deepened over time. Also Read - Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro in India gets MIUI 12 update

Before joining Xiaomi, Wang was at Qualcomm for 13 years. As the head of operations in China, Wang was instrumental in building relationships with phone makers like Xiaomi. The chip maker now powers some of Xiaomi s flagships in the Mi lineup, including the latest Mi Note Pro.

Xiang is not the first high-profile executive to join Xiaomi. The company had earlier poached Google’s face of Android, Hugo Barra to spearhead its global expansion plans. The smartphone maker has been beefing up its rosters with the likes of Googler Jai Mani and Donovan Sung from Spotify.

Getting global influential talent is imperative for Xiaomi, which is aggressively expanding outside of China. It aims to sell over 100 million smartphones this year, a big chunk of which would come from international markets like India and Brazil, where Xiaomi plans to launch next.
