Despite launching one of the most stunning Android handsets in the market, the HTC One, the Taiwanese firm is struggling to gain market shares lost to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Apple iPhone 5S. To help it get back in the game, HTC has appointed its CFO an additional task. He is now the head of sales.

According to Reuters, “Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC Corp has named current CFO Chialin Chang as global head of sales, according to a statement released by the company on Monday.

“The announcement comes amid waning fortunes for the once-dominant phone maker. In the most recent quarter, HTC posted its first-ever quarterly loss, while earlier this month it reported its 25th consecutive month of declining year-on-year sales.

“The company also saw a wave of executive departures earlier in the year and is undergoing structural changes in response to slumping revenue.

“Chang had been involved in sales previously and the move aims to consolidate operations, according to the company.

“Chang will also remain CFO "until the time a transition of responsibilities makes sense", the statement said.”
