CEO of Samsung Mobile, J.K. Shin is about to be replaced
You remember him? He was the man behind the wheel when Samsung’s mobile phone division was steering against the storm towards becoming what they are today. He was the Steve Jobs of Samsung. His English accent wasn’t too polished but then he had managed to have a few gigs at big Samsung nights like in 2012 when the Galaxy S3 was launched (pictured above). He also made a few appearances on this website, the most notable being when he announced that Samsung Mobile was selling 1 million devices daily.
By January 2015, J.K Shin, the man we all have known as the CEO of Samsung Mobile will be replaced by a new face. This is coming at a time when investors are calling for a change at Samsung, following the huge deficit in profit by the company this year. Change is what is about to happen. According to Wall Street Journal, these are the four top men at Samsung Electronics, and one of the other three is going to relieve Mr. Shin of his job title soon:
WSJ reports that B.K. Yoon may take control of the mobile section and might as well continue his own job as CEO of appliances. The semi-conductors head, Kwon Oh-hyun, might as well handle producing Exynos processors as well as Samsung smartphones in the future while a third heir, Jay Y. Lee, is seen as a plan C in case the other two do not work out.
Samsung had earlier fired the designer of Galaxy smartphones, giving birth to fresh formations like the Galaxy Alpha and the Galaxy A series. The Korean company is serious about not falling like BlackBerry and Nokia.
