Pretty much nothing is going well for HTC these days and now the company is starting to lose key executives after they’ve been on the job for less than six months. Bloomberg reports that Lorain Wong, who joined HTC this past June as its head of global PR, has already left the company for “personal reasons.”

Wong’s resignation comes just days after HTC chairperson Cher Wang blamed the company’s marketing strategy for a dismal earnings report that saw it lose money for the first time in its history. Of course, HTC has had even bigger troubles with executive departures this year, such as when police arrested former vice president of product design Thomas Chien for allegedly taking payments from a municipal government in China to set up a smartphone company in the region using trade secrets stolen from HTC.
