After more than a decade with the company, HTC's global executive vice president Jason Mackenzie announces its decision to quit. While the company did not announce a successor yet, Mackenzie did not unveil his plans for the future either.

HTC is not going down yet, but the company is definitely sailing through rough waters these days. The HTC 10 flagship was a financial failure, and the recently unveiled U Ultra high-end handset does not look like a winner, either. Yesterday, Jason Mackenzie, one of the company's long-serving executives has announced its intention to leave the company today, after no less than 12 years spent with HTC.

Mackenzie's message on Twitter reads the following: "After 12 amazing years, today is my last day @htc. It was a great run & I feel blessed. Thank you Peter Chou, @cherwang, & TeamHTC." He joined HTC back in 2005 and held various positions, such as President of HTC America, and now retires as the company's global executive vice president.

HTC still has to announce who would get the now vacant position. A few days ago, the senior designer of the Vive VR headset also left the company, joining Google to work on the Daydream VR platform.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
