Huawei appoints Tony Yangxu as new CEO in Ireland

Yangxu takes over from Jijay Shen, who has been CEO in Ireland for four years.

Huawei Ireland has appointed  its UK sales director, Tony Yangxu, as chief executive officer, assuming overall responsibility for the company’s carrier, enterprise and consumer business units, including the national roll-out of 5G.

“I am honoured to have the opportunity to lead the Huawei Ireland team and help contribute to Ireland’s recovery at such a challenging time. Huawei Ireland is fully committed to playing an active part in helping to create world-leading digital infrastructure throughout the country, including broadband and 5G, which will be essential for Ireland’s future economic success.”
