With over two decades of global go-to-market, executive, and accounting experience, Xu will provide operational and financial leadership, and support Co-founder & CEO Jason Tu in expanding the AI company’s global footprint.
Previously the VP and Head of Finance at Pinduoduo (PDD: US), one of the largest e-commerce platforms in China, Xu played a central role in its IPO listing on NASDAQ and in evolving the fast-growing company into a major global marketplace. He is a finance and technology veteran with expertise in the implementation of AI-based innovations. He was the co-president of Yuanzhi Technology, which led AI developments in industries ranging from commerce, medicine, education, to real estate. Prior to Pinduoduo, Xu was the Finance Director at Baidu (BIDU: US) covering products such as the Cloud, autonomous driving, and smart home systems. In addition to the domestic markets, Xu has a proven track record in identifying and scaling new market spaces overseas. Before Baidu, Xu served as Finance Director at Alibaba Group (BABA: US), where he was responsible for multiple business lines and global expansion, facilitating cross-border e-commerce initiatives, B2C and B2B businesses. Xu holds an MBA from MIT.
At MedTech, Tian Xu will oversee various operational aspects of the company, with a focus on optimizing efficiency and capability across business lines. As part of the company’s continued global expansion, Xu will also lead key initiatives, including strategy mapping and strategic acquisitions.
“The next big thing is SusTech, or sustainability technologies and solutions,” said Tian Xu. “Both capital markets and industries are coming to an agreement that a company should be valued not only by standalone financials but also by broader and more impactful ESG and climate metrics. I am very much looking forward to incorporating my passion and experience into MioTech’s future-ready vision, products and teams.”
“The key role Tian played in growing Alibaba, Baidu, and Pinduoduo really impressed us,” said Jason Tu, MioTech Co-founder & CEO. “We are excited that he shares our enthusiasm about technology and sustainability. His experience will strengthen our operations and fast-track our expansion in multiple business lines and geographies.”
