Huawei has appointed Vincent Pang as its president of Western Europe, replacing Kevin Tao after four years in the role.

Pang first joined Huawei in 1991 and has held several roles at the Chinese manufacturer, including vice-president of Western Europe. His previous role was as Huawei’s president of global sales and key accounts, overseeing global sales, orders and payment targets.

He will be tasked with overseeing sales, marketing and business operations in the region and will be in charge of Huawei’s 6,300-plus employees in Western Europe.

Pang said: “As we stand together at the threshold of a new digital age, our next steps will be decisive in shaping our common, connected future. I am excited to have been given the opportunity to lead Huawei’s strategic effort in Western Europe at such a crucial time.”

“As a global innovator, a valuable partner, and a responsible corporate citizen, Huawei is ideally placed to drive sustainable ICT growth and innovation in Western Europe. I look forward to working with Western European partners to make this happen, building on the successful work carried out so far.

Pang replaces Tao, who had been in the role since 2011 and will now take up an unspecified role at Huawei’s global headquarters in China.

Huawei deputy chairman and rotating CEO Eric Xu said: “After working in Western Europe for many years, Vincent Pang has accumulated extensive experience in this market. I have every confidence that, after taking office, he will lead the team to continue creating more value for customers with our local partners.”
