One less candidate for TSMC CEO
Chang has said he will retire (again) on October 31 2014 at the age of 83.
In preparation, Chang appointed three co-COOs. Chang’s idea was that the three co-COOs would each do six month shifts running R&D, business development and operations.
Now one of the three COOs, Chiang Shang-yi, the EVP in charge of R&D, has resigned.
That leaves Liu De-Yin and Wei Che-Chia as co-COOs and potential CEO.
In the meantime, Chang will take over running R&D.
