Acer appoints Jason Chen as new CEO

Computer and smartphone manufacturer Acer has appointed Jason Chen as its Corporate President and CEO with effect from 1st January 2014. Mr Chen is currently the senior vice president of Worldwide Sales and Marketing at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC).

Last month Acer effectively removed the role of CEO when it appointed Stan Shih, one of the company’s original co-founders, to the roles of Chairman and interim Corporate President. At the time it said “the CEO role will be appointed to either the Chairman or Corporate President and is expected to boost the company’s decision making efficiency”.

Stan Shih said “Jason is an excellent manager with extensive management experience and proven execution capability. Acer’s search committee met with him on several occasions for in-depth dialogue and exchange of views. We consider him to be the ideal executive to lead our transformation with his wealth of new thinking, international perspective, and willingness to face this challenge. Moreover, he shares the consensus on our strategy and development for Acer’s future.”

Mr Shih will remain as Acer’s chairman and as chairman of the company’s Transformation Committee.
