Acer Corporate president Jim Wong resigned abruptly in November this year. He was hand picked to be the PC maker’s  new CEO, succeeding J.T. Wang who resigned.  Stan Shih who founded the company had to take over as Chairman and Corporate President.

Acer finally found a former Intel executive Jason Chen to take the CEO position. He is tasked to take over the restructuring effort at Acer. Acer plans to cut 7% of its workforce and overhaul its structure to better compete in the shrinking PC space.
