J.T. Wang, chairman and CEO of Acer, said, “Acer encountered many complicated and harsh challenges in the past few years. With the consecutive poor financial results, it is time for me to hand over the responsibility to a new leadership team to path the way for a new era.”

Holy crap...

I've never seen a CEO ADMIT they screwed up a company before. Usually their ego and pride doesn't let them. tongue.gif

Well, it takes a lot for a person in a position like his to admit fault and willingly step down so others might do what he couldn't. If he has the character in him to do this, then he might not be a bad guy, and we should wish him the best.

Sometimes ideas don't work out, sometimes you aren't a fit for a position. That is a problem when you aren't willing to admit it and move on, but that isn't the case here it looks like.
