Xiaomi has been bringing in some changes in the company’s top order in India. The latest change to be introduced include the appointment of Muralikrishnan B who will now be overseeing the company’s operations in the country as the President. This makes for a big promotion for Muralikrishnan who has been with the company since 2018. Prior to taking things over as the President, Muralikrishnan B has been associated with the company as its Chief Operating Officer.
Xiaomi said as President of Xiaomi India, Muralikrishnan will be taking care of the everyday operations of the company, which includes services and customer affairs. Muralikrishnan will also be responsible for strategic projects that the company is pursuing in the country and uphold the company’s core philosophy in India, that of delivering innovation for everyone. Plus, Xiaomi said Muralikrishnan will also renew the company’s commitments to the Make in India and Digital India programs that the country has been pushing vigorously.
Prior to joining Xiaomi, Muralikrishnan has served as the India head of eBay and the Chief Operating Officer of Jabong India. He has also served as the Senior Vice President of the India online apparel platform Myntra as well. Taken together, Muralikrishnan has more than 25 years of experience in the Consumer Tech domain in the country and hails from IIM Kolkata. Xiaomi said the company has been performing extremely well and has scaled new peaks of performance and capability under his able leadership. Muralikrishnan will be taking things over from August 1, 2022, onwards.
The latest development comes amid several such similar changes the company has introduced in India. That includes the appointment of Alvin Tse who will be serving as the General Manager of the company’s Indian arm while Anuj Sharma is being appointed as the Chief Marketing Officer. All of these changes are being seen to be in response to the increased scrutiny and other legal issues the company is facing in the wake of investigation launched by the Enforcement Directorate in the country.
