Sumit Sonal, general manager of marketing at Xiaomi India, has stepped down from his position. He handled marketing activities for both Xiaomi and its sub-brand Redmi, for smartphones, smart TVs, laptops and tablets, artificial intelligence of things (AIoT), music, health and fitness.

Sonal joined Xiaomi India in 2017 and was a familiar face at the company’s launch events. The development comes amidst a spate of departures from the company. Earlier, in December 2022, Raghu Reddy, Chief Business Officer, Xiaomi India, resigned, while the company’s previous president, Manu Kumar Jain moved to Dubai taking up a global role in the company, after the enforcement directorate charged the company with Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) violations.
