Following corporate restructuring, LG's mobile division has a new CEO, Juno Cho. He has been the president and COO of the LG Corp., the parent company of LG Electronics, and has been in the company since 1986. From 2000 to 2007, he was in charge of business strategy, sales, and marketing for North America. Cho takes the reins of LG Mobile starting December 1.
The existing CEO of LG Mobile, Jong-seok Park, will shift to the role of Chief Technology Advisor.
Those are some pretty big waves at the upper echelons of LG. With any luck, Cho's experience in North America will help LG in their uphill battle against Samsung.
