The results come after a tough year for the company in Australia, with the government banning it from bidding for contracts in the rollout of 5G.
Haosheng Liu (Hudson Liu), who joined the company in 1998, is the new CEO. He has already served as deputy managing director of Huawei Germany, CEO of Huawei Belgium and, most recently, CEO of Huawei Indonesia.
In a statement, Huawei Australia said its carrier business had grown 20% year-on-year, with strong network investment from Optus and Vodafone being major drivers.
And the company also saw 20% growth year-on-year in its consumer business with high-end smartphone sales the main driver.
Huawei Australia chairman John Lord said the results were the best recorded by the company in its 15 years in Australia.
“It’s fair to say we had a challenging year on the political front, but our Australian customers valued and trusted our world leading technology and purchased it in record numbers,” he said.
“Huawei technology is cutting edge, safe and secure and that’s why we have become the largest supplier of mobile network infrastructure in Australia.
“These results make it very clear Huawei is the leading supplier of innovative telecommunications solutions and it’s a great shame Australians will miss out on our 5G technology.
“Countries that choose to work with Huawei will gain an advantage for the next wave of growth in the digital economy."
Lord said Huawei was retaining its focus on improving existing 4G networks.
Of the new appointment, Lord said: "Hudson joins us from Indonesia where, as CEO, he drove incredible growth, led Huawei’s telecommunications modernisation and digital transformation projects. The board and I look forward to working with Hudson to help continue Huawei’s ongoing success in Australia.”
