Chinese hardware manufacturer Xiaomi has added another former Google executive to its team. Jai Mani was a strategy and analytics associate for Google Play during his days at the search giant. The new hire will lead Xiaomi’s product team in India. According to Hugo Barra, who has worked with Mr. Mani in Google, he will be the connection between Xiaomi’s rapidly expanding user base in the country and the company’s engineering team in Beijing. Xiaomi will soon set up an engineering team in India as well.

Xiaomi’s latest personnel move is yet another indication that the company is serious about expanding internationally and ramping up its presence in India and Southeast Asia. The company is making provisions to sell 100,000 units a week in India this month. The Chinese company wants to build products or applications that run on its cellphones aimed at a global audience from India, Barra told the media earlier this year.
