Taiwan's Acer gets new chairman
(06-18 19:54)

Taiwan's struggling personal computer maker Acer named a new chairman, succeeding founder Stan Shih who had returned from retirement for a six-month stint to launch a series of reforms.
As expected, Shih announced during the annual shareholders' meeting he would resume his retirement and proposed George Huang, one of the company's co-founders, as his successor.
The board endorsed the nomination of Huang, who has been focusing on internet and e-commerce businesses since the 1990s.--AFP
