China Unicom has announced its largest leadership shuffle on April 7 since the establishment of Unicom New Space.

About six senior leaders at the group level have been changed positions and at least seven provincial general managers have been replaced, according to China Business News.

The company needs to overcome internal obstacles before making any progress, Chang Xiaobing, chairman of China Unicom pointed out during the two sessions last month.

The highly anticipated WCDMA service failed to fulfill set goals. In addition, the fixed phone business slumped more than that of China Telecom, which also indicated the necessity of better strategies, Chang said.

Net profits of China Unicom were slashed by 35.2 percent in 2009 year-on-year, its worst performance compared with China Mobile and China Telecom, the country’s two other communication giants.

As early as January 8, China Unicom began a complete restructuring of its company, including marketing, research and development, and functional departments.
