LG has been struggling to compete with the likes of Samsung and other Android smartphone makers and the company has not done as well as it has hoped with its mobile sales.
The company has now announced that they have appointed a new mobile boss, Brian Kwon who is currently the president of their Home Entertainment division.
Brian Kwon, currently president of LG’s Home Entertainment Company, will also assume leadership of the Mobile Communications (MC) Company. Mr. Kwon played a critical role in transforming LG’s TV, audio and PC business into category leaders and his knowledge and experience in the global marketplace will be instrumental in continuing LG’s mobile operations turnaround. Current MC Company president Hwang Jeong-hwan, who was brought in a year ago and successfully bolstered the operation’s quality assurance and product development efficiency, will focus fully on his other role as head of LG’s Convergence Business Development Office.
The company is also restructuring some other parts of LG, it will be interesting to see if this new appointment can turn their mobile business around.
