HTC's Vice President of Product Management, Mo Versi, has left the company
With a history that started back in 1997, HTC entered the smartphone market with handsets powered by the Microsoft Windows Mobile operating system in 2002. The first Android-driven HTC phones arrived in 2009, and the company that used to be called High Tech Computer Corporation managed to reach a 10.7 percent global market share in just two years after that. Sadly, its market share fell to around 2 percent in another two years and HTC has been struggling for survival ever since. Yesterday, they also lost Mo Versi, the company's Vice President of Product Marketing.
As it usually happens in such cases, Mo Versi did not unveil anything about the reasons behind his decision. The message he posted on Twitter yesterday simply reads the following: "After 8 amazing years, today is my last day @htc It was a great run and I feel lucky to have worked with such an amazing team. Thank you @HTCUSA. Wish you all the best! For any questions on software updates, please reach out to @urbanstrata"
One month ago, HTC's mobile business president, Chialin Chang, decided to leave the company and to set up his own AI firm. He was with HTC since 2012, when he had joined the company after leaving Goldman Sachs. Mo Versi, on the other hand, arrived at HTC after holding senior positions at T-Mobile and Samsung.
