Samsung SDI selects head of memory business to be CEO
Jun will be confirmed at a shareholders meeting on March 24.
While promotions have been delayed across Samsung Group’s affiliates as a Korean prosecution team investigates the company on bribery charges, the announcement from Samsung SDI marks the beginning of organizational reforms to come at the tech giant.
Jun’s predecessor, Cho Nam-seong, resigned, citing personal reasons, but industry sources assume Cho stepped down to take responsibility for the Galaxy Note7 fiasco. Samsung SDI supplied batteries that were found to be a major cause of the phone catching fire.
