Today I was alerted by Rayman Lei on Twitter that Wang Chunwen has resigned less than a year after he took charge of Autodesk’s Greater China business. Autodesk PR has reportedly confirmed that the resignation happened yesterday, but did not disclose who would succeed Chunwen.
Autodesk appears to be in deep trouble in China. Rarely do companies come out with 82% discount offers when they are doing well. There is speculation that Autodesk’s dwindling fortunes in China may have been the cause for the change in leadership.
