Chialin Chang is departing the company to pursue a 'personal career plan, ' and HTC has yet to appoint a replacement. HTC's smartphone revenue has declined significantly over the years, and isn't showing any signs of improving.

As noted by HTC Investors, the company's President of Smartphones and Connected devices, Chang Chialin, has resigned. Before then though, HTC does have a major smartphone launch planned for this year, with the HTC U12.

Chang had previously been HTC's CFO and eventually became its head of global sales. Chang joined HTC as its Chief Financial Officer in 2012 before becoming the smartphone and connected devices president back in 2016.

There's no word yet on who will replace Chang at HTC, so his position's duties will likely fall on CEO Cher Wang's shoulders - not an easy feat. "We thank him for his dedication to the company for the last six years and wish him well in his future endeavors". HTC reported that Chang has immediately resigned due to "personal career plan reasons". However, after Google acquired HTC's smartphone design and engineering teams, his position was somewhat redundant.
