China's Baidu says COO to step down

BEIJING, May 18 (Reuters) - China's top search engine, Baidu Inc, said on Friday its Chief Operating Officer Lu Qi will step down.

Lu joined the company in late 2016 when it was restructuring to focus on artificial intelligence (AI) and is leaving the role in July due to personal and family reasons, Baidu said in a social media posting.

The outgoing executive will remain Vice Chairman of Baidu and Vice President Wang Haifeng will now oversee the company's AI projects, Baidu said. (Reporting by Cate Cadell; Editing by Himani Sarkar)
