Fresh CEO of HTC Comes from the Orange World (remember it?) And replaces Yves Maitre, replacing Chief Executive Sher Wong who has also served as CEO of the company since 2015 - with the stated goal of targeting the company's emerging cellular communications business In the fifth generation and the XR (eXtended Reality) business, without completely abandoning the smartphone market despite all the challenges.
