It’s not been a good year for HTC. Just recently, the Taiwanese phone-maker announced its first-ever quarterly loss, which is just another problem on the list: the HTC One has not been banned in the UK, though it might have been, because of a judge that understood the “considerable” damage of such a measure to go with the HTC One Mini injunction, later stayed.
Trying to rise above the water to catch a breath of air, the company is shuffling around executives: its latest move is to name the current CFO as head of sales. Chialin Chang is the Chief Financial Officer, and will remain in that position “until the time a transition of responsibilities makes sense”, but he is also the new head of HTC’s global sales. Chang will try to stop the declining trend of the company (year-on-year sales are down for two years now) with his experience in sales, a field in which he has already worked in, according to a company statement quoted by Reuters.
