Manu Jain quits Xiaomi group
New Delhi :
Manu Kumar Jain on January 30 announced his exit from the Xiaomi group, after being it associated with it for over nine years. In a statement shared on social media, Jain said he would be “taking some time off” before moving towards the “next professional challenge”.
“These last nine years were truly phenomenal and I will forever cherish the love and support I have received from fans, partners, team members and friends. I am lucky to have experienced something so special that it makes saying this goodbye very hard,” Jain said.
After joining Xiaomi in 2014, Jain had served in multiple roles. He was the smartphone brand’s India region managing director for three years, from 2014 to 2017, and was subsequently appointed as the company’s president for Indian subcontinent region.
Within three years of his tenure with Xiaomi, the company “became the no. 1 smartphone brand in India”, Jain’s statement noted. “Soon 100 percent of our smartphones and smart TVs were being made-in-India…Our expanding scale of operations helped generate more than 50,000 jobs in India,” the outgoing top Xiaomi executive added.
“After building a strong team and business, I wished to help other markets with our learnings. With this intention, I moved abroad —1.5 years ago (in July 2021), and subsequently joined the Xiaomi International team. I am proud of the strong India leadership team that continues to work independently and tirelessly,” he further said.
Jain was presently serving as the global vice president of Xiaomi.
Change is the only constant in life!
Last 9 years, I’m lucky to have received so much love that it makes this goodbye so difficult. Thank you all. ❤️
The end of a journey also marks the beginning of a new one, full of exciting opportunities. Hello to a new adventure!#ManuJain pic.twitter.com/sVgahC7zhr
