HTC down in the rank, VP of Global Communications and Chief Product Officer Quit
HTC is facing the major financial crunch, and the outlook of the ever prosperous handset maker may not be so prosperous after all. Jason Gordon, HTC’s vice president of global communications, revealed on Twitter that he ended almost 7 year long tenure with the handset maker last Friday, but didn’t divulge why he left or what his future plans include.
Now, according to The Verge and multiple online resources Chief Product Officer Kouji Kodera has also resigned which takes behind several other executives, that have decided to leave HTC and take their business elsewhere.
HTC’s CEO Peter Chou had blamed poor marketing for holding the company back in 2012, due to which Chief Marketing Officer Ben Ho’s said to be moving the outfit’s planning and strategy back to its Taipei HQ. This could be a major reason for all the power shift in the company.
HTC has enjoyed a lot of fame due to their Windows Phone series last year and the “One” this year. But, due to lack of deliveries, and slow downs due to production quality HTC has alost a major chunk of their market share to korean manufacturer Samsung.
