Staff squeeze at Morning Star

Staff squeeze at Morning Star

Morning Star may not replace two product managers who have left, amid tough times in the market.

Eric Yen and Max Zhang recently left the distributor and may not be replaced due to tough market conditions for the company, says sales and marketing director Victor Ho. “It depends on how we go for the rest of the year. It’s quite bad out there at the moment. As we grow we may need them [replacements].”

Taft Chou has been reassigned into a product management role to manage OEM relationships and Asus business. He spent time away from product management while with TechMaster, a part of Morning Star’s Auckland operation.

The two departures and one in-office transfer has reduced staff numbers from 10 to eight, Ho says.

He adds Yen, who worked for the company for seven years and lately managed its BenQ agency, has joined Synnex. Meanwhile Zhang, who spent about three-and-a-half years with Morning Star, most recently as product manager for Fujitsu PCs, had not yet joined another company at the time of writing.
