Three rotating executives from completely different areas of the corporate to maintain issues recent
Beginning October 1st, Huawei may have a brand new CEO top the corporate. However Eric Xu’s tenure on the prime of the corporate can be brief, as a result of concurrently saying his new place, Huawei put and finish date of March 31, 2014 on the promoting. It is a part of a plan Huawei has to rotate its CEO each six months amongst three executives, and the intention is to keep the Chinese handset and wireless infrastructure company nimble and fresh.
Along with keeping his existing duties as an executive, Xu adds all of the new responsibility of being the acting CEO of the company, primarily focusing on “the company’s operations and crisis management” and managing meetings of the Board of Directors.
At the end of his time as CEO, Xu will hand over the reigns to yet another executive again. The current rotation moves between Eric Xu, Guo Ping and Ken Hu, which each bring their own perspective on the company and come from different areas of expertise.
Only time will tell how successful the musical chairs in the CEO’s office will work, but it’s an interesting move for Huawei in an active attempt to keep the company moving forward in this fast-moving wireless industry.
