HTC reportedly appointing Edward Wang as new CFO

Sources claim HTC's Edward Wang is taking over the reins as company CFO from Chailin Chang, who announced a move over to global sales late last year once a replacement was found. Wang has previous experience with banks and holding companies, and has been with HTC since 2006.

There's already been two senior departures within HTC recently, a new marketing guy, and with this additional shuffle, the tumult will take some time to die down.

HTC's financials are currently in rough shape, so Wang's work is clearly cut out. With any luck, a fresh set of eyes will help propel the HTC One (M8) and other upcoming devices to commercial success, but Samsung remains in a well-entrenched leadership position. What do you guys think HTC could do at a leadership level to get back on their feet?
