Huawei has appointed Jiawei Liu as the new UAE CEO. Liu will be responsible for strategy and operations, in addition to providing consultancy and support to customers, the company said.
As country CEO, Liu will oversee Huawei’s UAE operations across carrier, enterprise, and consumer segments.
In his previous role, Liu served as CEO of Huawei Uganda. He has previously held the position of CEO in Mauritius and Malawi, before which he worked in South Africa, Mozambique, and China.
“It is a privilege to have the opportunity to head operations in a market as exciting as the UAE. Known for its progressive approach to technology and innovation adoption, the UAE offers significant opportunity for Huawei technologies, particularly in terms of our 5G, AI, and cloud-based solutions. Enabling digital transformation throughout the emirates by empowering our customers with cutting-edge technology will be my priority,” Liu said.
Liu replaces immediate former UAE country manager Li Shi who has been appointed as the new regional president for the Cloud and AI Business Group, also based out of Dubai.
“With Liu’s impeccable track record and undeniable leadership expertise, we are confident of his ability to further harness Huawei’s technology capabilities to build the UAE’s ICT ecosystem and support the country’s digitisation efforts. We look forward to working with Liu to support the UAE’s ambitious digital targets,” Charles Yang, president of Huawei Middle East said.
