Acer has named Jim Wong as the head of the Touch Business Group and PC Global Operations. After Acer launched a few tablet devices, Acer’s former tablet lead Gianfranco Lanci was ousted. Wong is replacing Gianfranco.
?For the past ten years Jim has led Acer?s global IT operations, including product development and logistics. In that time he has shown outstanding leadership and made important contribution to the company. He has also worked closely with our regional operations to thoroughly understand the needs of our marketing and channels at the front end operations. Therefore, we regard Jim as a well-qualified candidate to step into the role of Acer corporate president,? stated Acer Chairman and CEO J.T. Wang.
