HTC appoints Phil Roberson as UK head
HTC has appointed Everything Everywhere director of devices Phil Roberson as its UK head, Mobile can reveal.
The move follows former HTC UK & Ireland country manager Jon French’s promotion to a global role.
In his new role, Roberson will be accountable for HTC UK’s performance, reporting to French.
During the last year Roberson is credited with brokering deals to get the iPad and iPhone on the T-Mobile network in his role as director of devices. He has also been championing the benefits of a multi-OS strategy within Everything Everywhere.
Prior to that he was head of terminals at T-Mobile. As well as overseeing the company’s handset portfolio his scope of influence extended to purchasing, trading, stock control and more.
Roberson was ranked 15 in this year's Mobile Power 50.
