Peter Chou used to be the CEO of HTC, but in the up-and-downs that HTC has experienced in the past few years, Chou was not always at the head of the company’s greatest decisions (see the Robert Downey Jr. deal). Shortly after the One M9 launch, Chou will stand down as CEO and transition as the leader of the HTC Future Development Lab. What they’ll be doing? Apparently he “will be instrumental in identifying future growth opportunities for the company.”
Chairwoman and co-founder Cher Wang will take the position as chief executive officer. The journey continues.
