New HTC communications head departs after four months

Lorain Wong reportedly resigned for 'personal reasons'

Just over four months ago HTC announced the appointment of former telco exec Lorain Wong as its new head of global PR, replacing Jason Gordon, who was one of many high-profile departures over the summer. Today Bloomberg reports that Wong herself has now left the company, with HTC CMO Benjamin Ho quoted as saying she resigned for "personal reasons." She will reportedly remain at the company in a consulting role for the next three to four months.

This latest executive departure comes at a challenging time for the Taiwanese smartphone maker, which posted its first quarterly loss earlier this month.
