He was previously chairman of Bank of China Ltd. but left on March 17, 2013 in order to assume the newer role, succeeding Guo Shuqing.   He was named to the Commission as part of a new team assembled by Chinese president Xi Jinping to oversee the markets’ opening-up and reform.
Xiao worked in various positions at China’s central bank, the People's Bank of China, for more than 20 years, eventually becoming deputy governor before joining the Bank of China, the nation’s fourth-biggest listed lender. He was named head of Bank of China in March 2003.
