Coolpad has announced the appointment of Fisher Yuan as its new India CEO. As the CEO, Fisher will be driving the mission and vision of the company while overseeing its day-to-day operations. As Coolpad further strengthens its presence in India, Fisher will create a strategic road-map for optimum market penetration on the back of the brand’s consumer-centric R&D practices.

Speaking on his new role, Fisher Yuan, CEO, Coolpad India, said, “Having spent several years with Coolpad, I have learned that the company’s growth mission and vision are perfectly aligned with my own. It is, therefore, an honor to be appointed as the India CEO of this high-potential brand that is revolutionizing the global smartphone landscape.
