Xiaomi India's managing director along with the head of marketing Anuj Sharma today announced, in a rather fun tweet, that tech journalist Ankit Vengurlekar will now be leading the PR and communications function at Xiaomi:
Adding a touch of Yoga to the welcome tweet, Jain said the former "#Gadgetwala has been living and breathing tech for over a decade."
Among India's top consumer tech firms, Xiaomi India recently shared that it sold 5.3 million devices in a week as part of it's 'Diwali with Mi' campaign targeted at India's top festive season in October.
Vengurlekar is a former tech and gadget journalist who has worked as producer and anchor with CNBC TV 18 and CNBC Awaaz. His latest assignment before joining Xiaomi was as editor-in-chief at Tech2.com, owned by Web 18 Software, the internet arm of Network 18.
