Earlier this year we all heard HTC’s CEO, Peter Chou, promise that if the HTC One didn’t succeed, he would step down as the company’s leader. A promise that not many of us praised, since the HTC that we know and which many of us admire, was born under the administration of Chou. Still, with the lukewarm results of the HTC One, we were all just waiting for the sad news, even though they seem to not be as bad as we expected.
As it turns out, a publish report that went out today states that Chou is now focusing on HTC’s innovation and product development, and the company’s Chairwoman and Co-founder Cher Wang will take over the rest of Chou’s duties, which are mainly sales, marketing, supplier relationship, etc. Another surprise is that another HTC co-founder H.T. Chou will return to the company, and will be in charge of some unspecified phone projects that we’ll most likely learn about soon.
We all know of Chou’s expertise as an engineer, so I can’t say that these changes are bad at all. HTC needs a strong focus in marketing, and the more help Chou can get in this department, the better. Let’s hope that all these changes mean a better 2014 for the company we expected to see shining in 2013.
