“After 12 amazing years, today is my last day @htc. It was a great run & I feel blessed. Thank you Peter Chou, @cherwang, & TeamHTC,” Mackenzie said on his tweet. Mackenzie has been a part of HTC even before the company made it big in the Android game. He became part of HTC family in 2005. In the past, he has worked as Vice President of T-Mobile USA. In HTC, he held different positions over the years – from President of the Americas to Global Executive Vice President in January of 2016. 

Mackenzie has worked on HTC VIVE, which is the VR heardset of the company and he helped in marketing the device in April 2016. Most of his time was dedicated to smartphone business including the HTC One smartphone.

Moreover, Mackenzie thanked Peter Chou and Cher Wang on his statement posted on LinkedIn. He thanked his company for his time working with them.

“To say that I enjoyed my time at HTC is a massive understatement. HTC was family and I loved the challenges and opportunity to work on so many cool products and partner (and learn from) so many great customers,” he said.

HTC’s VP of Design Claude Zellweger has also left the company, moving to the Google Daydream team.
