HTC Design Chief to Depart
HTC today indicated the company's head of design, Scott Croyle, is leaving. Croyle joined HTC's ranks in 2008 as part of the company's acquisition of the One & Co. design firm. Croyle is responsible for the designs of both the HTC One M7 and M8 smartphones, which have been lauded for their design. Croyle will slowly transition away from HTC to work on his own projects, but will still play a role in select efforts at HTC. Jonah Becker, who worked under Croyle, will assume most of Croyle's responsibilities, which include managing the company's San Francisco design studio. HTC also promoted Drew Bamford from the head of the Sense user interface to overseeing all HTC's software and services. The changes are effective immediately.
