HTC senior vice-president of design Scott Croyle is leaving the Taiwanese OEM to work on his own projects. The news has been confirmed by HTC as well.
The company describes it as a “long-term transition” where Croyle will work in a consultancy role to focus on special projects.
“HTC remains at the forefront of smartphone innovation. Scott Croyle will be focusing on special projects and dedicated on next generation developments,” says HTC.
Some of the Croyle’s work will go to Drew Bamford, who received a promotion to work on software and services, and report directly to the CEO Peter Chou.
“Drew Bamford is an experienced and talented leader at HTC with solid track records in leading and building our user experience team. Effective immediately, in addition to his current duties in product development and user experience, Drew will lead HTC Creative Labs and focus on innovative new products and user experience strategies.”
He said to be the guy behind the beautiful designs of the HTC One M7 and One M8. Let’s see who will take over Croyle’s position in the coming months.
