Lei Jun

Unsurprisingly, Earth Roosters are known for their business acumen. It’s lucky for Lei that he is running the enviable company that he is, as those with such fine feathers tend to feel the need to strut around and garner respect from colleagues. Yet his stars indicate that he’ll make his fortune following the troop through the IT forest. Whether that means listening to his underlings, or aping silverbacks Pony Ma and Robin Li in scampering up the Hurun list, is something for those who monkey with predictions to essay. It’s a time for Earth Roosters to come out of the shadows; so is this the year that Xiaomi overtakes Apple and sets the pace? Or will it witness the company’s datacollection policies become a little more transparent?
