The Korean tech giant just announced that it had appointed Roh Tae-moon as the Mobile chief, he will be overseeing Samsung’s mobile business. Meanwhile, the co-CEO DJ Koh will continue to lead the chaebol’s IT and mobile communications division. This change in management came just ahead of the launch of the new Galaxy S20 range of smartphones.
Roh Tae-moon has contributed massively towards the Company’s research and development, especially when it comes to the Galaxy device lineups. He joined Samsung in 1997 and since then has been a key player in almost all the devices launched. Until now, Roh was the development manager in the Galaxy division of Samsung and was a large part of their outsourcing efforts.
With Chinese manufacturers soaring, especially in the entry-level and mid-range segment, Samsung has more competition than ever before. Even though it is still dominating the mobile market, it was time for it to make the necessary changes if the Company desires to keep its crown.
Let’s see how things work out for Samsung with these changes in the management. The Company is all set to launch its upcoming flagship series on February 11th in San Francisco.
