Lenovo Group is announcing that it will create a new company focused on building a leading internet-based smart devices and services business in China. The company will become operational on April 1, 2015. It will operate under a separate name and brand. The objective of this move is to help Lenovo attack the fast growing consumer mobile device market in China, with a focus not only on devices, but also on software and application development and close customer engagement. Currently Lenovo has a leading smartphone business, which sells mainly through open market sales and carrier relationships. While Lenovo has and continues to strengthen its own company-branded online channels as part of its go-to-market strategy, the new company will exclusively focus on direct-to-consumer sales, marketing and product development using an internet-based business model. Effective April 1, Chen Xudong, currently president of Lenovo’s China geography and Asia Pacific – Emerging Markets, will become CEO of this new company. Tong Fuyao, currently vice president of China’s relationship business will become head of Lenovo’s China business.
