This management change is part of a well-planned transition that will take effect on May 1, 2014.
Eva Ho joined Acer as CFO in March 2012 and in these two years has led Acer through many challenges and accomplished her core assignment of establishing an integrated global accounting process. Ho tendered her resignation as part of her career planning, which the Board fully respects and has approved of this personal decision.
