HTC Corporation has officially opened its new European and UK headquarters in Slough today. The building will house senior management, the sales & marketing teams and the engineering teams for HTC EMEA and HTC UK.
Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation, said “HTC is on a hugely exciting journey, from humble beginnings to a global brand. HTC is growing on all fronts in 2011; we’re attracting new, exciting talent to the senior management team and increasing our commitment to local markets through investment in people and partnerships. Our new European office is a natural next step to show our commitment to the EMEA market and we look forward to using this office as a base from which to drive the European mobile market forward in the years to come.”
The new HTC facility covers 6,500 square metres and was formerly the UK headquarters of O2. Almost 150 new staff will be recruited for the HQ during the next 12 months.
