Chang cited a "personal career plan" as the reason for leaving HTC, without going into any details.

In December 2013, Chang was appointed president of HTC's global sales before being made president of the Smartphone and Connected Devices Business in early 2017. The bottom line is, Chang is out and HTC, at least for now, is not replacing him. "We thank him for his dedication to the Company for the last 6 years and wish him well in his future endeavors". The move comes months after Google chose to buy the smartphone design and engineering team from HTC for $1.1 billion (roughly Rs. 7,000 crores), and it could be the outcome of the plan that was reportedly aimed to streamline the company's smartphone lineup this year.
