HTC executive Chialin Chang, who first joined the company back in 2012 as CFO, has resigned.

The reason for the resignation of Chialin Chang is not clear but as per sources, he has resigned because of his personal carrier plan.

So far, HTC has not named a successor to Chang.

HTC is losing its smartphone chief as Chialin Chang, the company's President for the Smartphone and Connected Devices Business, announces his resignation effective immediately.

On the other hand, Chang's position with HTC was no longer as relevant as it used to be.

His position seemed useless as HTC sold nearly all of its smartphone design and engineering team to Google. The company hasn't revealed any replacement for Chang yet.
