HTC design head Scott Croyle isn’t the only executive leaving HTC. It turns out Ford Davidson, an HTC senior director, is also leaving the company. Davidson used to own a company called Dashwire, which he ultimately sold to HTC to help create its online sync tools. Geekwire first published Davidson’s intentions to leave, and it’s unclear if they are at all related to Croyle’s departure.
“HTC recently launched the new HTC One (M8), which is amazing, and our team on the software/service experience side, is rocking, so timing is good for me to get back to entrepreneurship,” Davidson told Geekwire on Friday, noting that today was his final day with the company. Davidson will reportedly work on another piece of software and is making his move in an effort to return to entrepreneurship.
TechnoBuffalo wishes Davidson the best of luck. We’ve worked with him since his days back at Dashwire and can’t wait to see what he comes up with next. HTC had no official comment when reached by TechnoBuffalo.
