Baidu appoints new president

BAIDU has hired former Microsoft executive Lu Qi as president and chief operating officer, the latest effort by the Chinese search giant to step up corporate governance, according to an email statement today.

Every Baidu business unit head will report to Lu, with immediate effect, as Baidu seeks strong management to drive the next phase of growth.

“To achieve our goals, especially in artificial intelligence, which is a key strategic focus for the next decade, we will need to continue attracting the best global talent,” Baidu chairman and founder Robin Li said in Tuesday’s statement.

Lu holds a PhD in computer science and has over 40 US patents under his name and will report to Li.
