HTC vice president quits the company
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.
