After yesterday’s news of Florian Seiche, ex President of HTC EMEA, leaving the company to continue working over at Nokia, we now have something official coming from HTC. The Taiwanese company has issued a statement (below), announcing the new Head of EMEA. The statement also confirms Seiche’s departure.
“HTC, a global leader in smartphone innovation, has today announced the appointment of Phil Blair as its new Head of EMEA. Previously Vice President of Product and Operations for the region, Phil has been with the company since it launched in EMEA in 2005 and has worked closely with Florian Seiche as co-founder during that time to grow the business to where it is today. Replacing Florian, who has made the decision to leave the company, Phil will be responsible for leading HTC’s strategic growth across EMEA, in addition to heading up the UK arm of the business. Phil’s depth of experience in the smartphone market, intrinsic understanding of mobile products and long-standing relationships with key industry partners put him in a strong position to create new opportunities for the business, taking HTC into its next phase of growth. We would like to thank Florian for his commitment to the company and to wish him well in his future endeavours”.
