Effective 1 January 2015, Mr. Moon will be replaced by Mr. Youngik Lee as Managing Director for Australia. Previous to this role, Mr. Lee was part of the RAC Overseas Sales & Marketing at LG HQ in Seoul, Korea.
In a final executive move for the LG Australia business, it was also announced today that LG Australia’s current Head of Mobile Communications, Jonathan Banks, will leave the company in March 2015 to pursue other opportunities. LG will begin the search for Mr. Banks’ successor immediately.
Lambro Skropidis, General Manager, Marketing at LG Electronics Australia said: “Mr. Moon and Mr. Banks have been great advocates for the Australian business. Both have been instrumental in steering significant change and innovation during their time with us and they will be missed. We send them on with our very best wishes and look forward to welcoming Mr. Lee as we move into the New Year.”
