Ford Davidson leaving HTC, contemplates new startup

HTC Senior Director and Dashwire founder Ford Davidson is leaving the company after almost three years. Davidson has been with HTC since 2012, coming aboard with the sale of his startup, Dashwire, which spawned HTC's Get Started setup tool. Davidson felt that the time was right for his departure, following the launch of HTC's latest device, the HTC One M8, according to GeekWire.

"HTC recently launched the new HTC One m8, which is amazing, and our team on the software/service experience side, is rocking, so timing is good for me to get back to entrepreneurship," Davidson tells GeekWire. His last day is Friday. Davidson is already thinking about a new startup idea relating to mobile services. HTC's design chief Scott Croyle also announced today that he would be leaving the company. Are you sorry to see Davidson go? Be sure to tell us below in the comments.
