Xiaomi today announced that it has promoted its India managing director Manu Kumar Jain to the role of a vice president. Jain's elevation comes after Hugo Barra, Xiaomi's Global vice president, had announced quitting the company to head back to Silicon valley after a stint of three and a half years. Barra will join Facebook.
With Xiaomi VP Hugo Barra hanging up his boots by end of February, senior vice president Xiang Wang is all set to replace him to lead Xiaomi’s global efforts going ahead.
