HTC CEO will carry Olympic torch

Posted: , by Victor H.

HTC CEO will carry Olympic torch
HTC’s chief executive Peter Chou is one of the coolest CEOs in the industry - he performs with music bands, sings on stage in front of people, but most importantly uplifted HTC to global success. The last couple of quarters the company is back on the rise, growing revenues, and that’s good news.

Good enough for Chou to be among a couple of hundreds of people that will relay the Olympic torch. The HTC head has been honored for his contributions to the development of the mobile industry as a whole.

"Every step I take will represent my deepest support for Taiwan's athletes attending the London 2012 Olympic Games," Chou said. 

Check out HTC's top management have a good time on stage singing and dancing to Chinese tunes below, isn't it cool having such a boss?

In a very small way, yes... maybe now HTC can start eating into Samsung's profits.

Samsung is the official phone manufacturer of the Olympics. Juat like in the Android world, HTC is playing second-fiddle to Samsung.

According to wikipedia, htc was founded in 1997. Is that true? It just 15 years.. Compared to giant like samsung, nokia, apple, motorola, sony. How did they come up so fast?

HTC was an ODM previously manufacturing for Compal, and other companies like Foxxcon.

Their recent success (minus Q4 of last year) is even more amazing considering they've only been branding their own phones for about six years. Pretty much everything before their Touch series was rebranded by carriers.

Thx now i understand. That means they have been around for a pretty long time but not under 'htc' brand. Got it.

That must be so cool for him to carry the torch (for anyone in that matter). Also, I think for HTC's success is pretty amazing, even though they are not as big as Samsung. However, for a company came from a country that most people who has no idea of is a pretty amazing achievement.

The other woman in red with him is the current CHAIR PERSON of HTC. So not only CEO, all the stake holders are very cool at HTC then. Nice to see this enthusiasm from the top tier executives.
