Xiaomi appoints ex Jabong executive Muralikrishnan B as India COO

Muralikrishnan has previously served as the COO of Flipkart-owned online fashion store Jabong for nearly two years. He's also worked as senior vice president of Myntra for five months, as per his LinkedIn profile.

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has appointed former eBay India country manager Muralikrishnan B as its chief operating officer (COO) for India.

Muralikrishnan has previously served as the COO of Flipkart-owned online fashion store Jabong for nearly two years. He's also worked as senior vice president of Myntra for five months, as per his LinkedIn profile.

The announcement was made on Twitter by Xiaomi India head Manu Kumar Jain, who incidentally is among the founding members of Jabong.

Before joining Jabong, Muralikrishnan had served as the COO of online real estate portal IndiaProperty for nearly an year and half. He had also launched a startup in the digital health & wellness segment.

Xiaomi which recently raised $4.7 billion in Hong Kong in an initial public offering (IPO), is looking to strengthen its presence in the Indian online and offline smartphones, having taken over erstwhile leader Samsung in recent quarters.

The company had earlier appointed former Samsung executive Deepak Nakra as its offline sales head for the Indian market.

Xiaomi also launched its first lending product Mi Credit in May this year, in partnership with KrazyBee. Xiaomi had backed student lending firm KrazyBee last year.
