Taiwanese phone giant HTC is shuffling leadership at its North American headquarters office in Bellevue.
Jason Mackenzie, president of HTC for North America and Latin America, is being promoted to president of global sales and marketing, reporting to Chief Executive Peter Chou.
Mackenzie has been leading the Americas for the company since 2007 and will continue filling the job until a replacement is named. After that he’ll continue to stay in Bellevue, running the global sales and marketing business from the Eastgate office.
In recent years HTC raised its profile and established itself as a premium handset brand through aggressive marketing campaigns and by putting a greater emphasis on software and hardware design.
Before joining HTC in 2007, Mackenzie worked in sales and marketing at Denso Wireless and Siemens Communications.
