With nearly a decade of previous professional experience in purchasing, administration, and sales, H.P. Chang officially joined the WitsView display research division of TrendForce in the spring of 2006. H.P. was able to leverage his extensive competencies to accurately model relevant market information and implement cutting-edge research methodology. Under his leadership, the WitsView research team became a global leader in the field of display-related market intelligence.
H.P. officially transitioned to TrendForce’s research team in August 2013 and expanded the scope of his research from TFT-LCD to other areas, including memory, LED, and PV. In early 2015, following TrendForce’s acquisition of Topology Research Institute (TRI), he oversaw TRI’s foray into the research of integrated circuits, communications, consumer electronics, emerging technology, and automotive technology.
H.P. believes that a company’s most valuable resource lies in its talent development, and sustainable growth depends on how well a company can intelligently navigate the knowledge economy. Along with H.P., TrendForce and TRI aim to provide their private, industrial, and governmental clients with the most up-to-date, professional, and innovative research in industrial development.
