Huawei CEO Chairman Yu Chengdong

A new report reveals that Yu Chengdong, one of the senior executives in Huawei will no longer serve as the CEO but as the Chairman of the Device Business Group. The OEM made some adjustments to its personnel management for better growth.

Details by @36Krypton reveal that the former Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Huawei Device Group – He Gang will now take over the responsibilities of the CEO position.

The official document shows that Huawei never had a Chairman for its Device Business Group, which encouraged it to initiate such a post in the device work line.

Hence Yu Chengdong has stepped down from the CEO position and will sit on the Chairman seat of the Huawei Device Business. People related to the company said that changes are normal and nothing special in a company’s senior executive’s life.

Note that this promotion has simply expanded Yu’s scope of duties in the company. Yu Chengdong will now have to look after as the Managing Director, Chairman of Device Business, Chairman of smart car solutions, and Director of IRB (Investment Review Board) for smart devices and car components.

New Responsibilities

From just seeing the responsibilities of the device consumer business to moving on to a higher-level decision-making post, Richard Yu will now have more duties than before.

Yu Chengdong joined Huawei in 1993 as a 3G Product Director, the Vice President of the Wireless Technical Sales Department, and several other positions. Richard Yu continues to be an important part of the company, focusing on both phone and automobile solution business.
