LG made its selection for the next leader of its struggling mobile division.
In an effort to save the business unit from dying off, the South Korean company chose Brian Kwon. Heâ€™s been at the helm of LGâ€™s home entertainment division and transformed several units into categoryÂ leaders. Over the last few years, Kwon has worked on televisions, audio, and computers. Aside from those areas, Kwon brings in vital experience in global operations.
The mobile division hasnâ€™t improved in the last year. Hwang Jeong-hwan took over the unit in late 2017, but LGâ€™s high-end and mid-range devices failed to gain momentum in the months following that shakeup. Itâ€™s now Kwonâ€™s task to navigate a turnaround.
From its press release, LG seemed to stop short of full-blown appreciation for Jeong-hwanâ€™s service. The company expressed gratitude for his ability to guide quality assurance and product development efficiency. Of course, that doesnâ€™t do much for sales. LG needs to sell phones and tablets more than anything else.
