HTC Chief Financial Officer Chailin Chang will take over as head of global sales in addition to his current responsibilities, reports Bloomberg. Chang takes over global sales duties from HTC America President Jason Mackenzie, who has occupied the role since late 2012, having managed both global sales and marketing before that.
The move is one of many HTC executive switches in the past year, which has seen several high-level job changes and departures at the Taiwanese smartphone maker amid falling revenue. HTC recently posted the first quarterly operating loss in its history, and risks a second quarter of losses if it misses its Q4 targets by even a small amount.
This latest change of responsibilities also brings a key role back to the company's Taipei HQ, a theme of some of HTC's earlier restructuring.
