TORONTO—A senior executive with Huawei Canada is leaving his post after more than seven years at the Chinese telecom giant, which has recently been facing increasing scrutiny over its close ties to Beijing.
Scott Bradley, who was Huawei Canada’s senior vice president for corporate affairs, indicated in a LinkedIn post that he no longer holds that position. He couldn’t be immediately reached for comment.
Huawei, founded by Ren Zhengfei—a former officer at China’s People’s Liberation Army—has been cited as a security risk in intelligence circles, due to having close ties to the Chinese Communist regime. Western intelligence officials have raised concerns that Beijing could use the company’s equipment for espionage.
