Smartphone supremo Chen Guowei has apparently left Acer to spend more time with his family. Guowei was in charge of Acer’s business unit in mainland China.
And the net has spread wider, according to Taiwanese wire Digitimes, the head of EMEA operations, Walter Deppeler, is set to leave the company too.
The company plans to cut as many as seven percent of its global workforce. Like other PC manufacturers, Acer has been hit by a drop in demand for X86 based systems and a widespread move to smartphones and tablets that aren’t Acer tablets.
