CJ Logistics appoints Samsung exec to VP spot
Park Keun-hee, who served as the CEO of Samsung Life Insurance, will be in charge of the overall management of CJ Logistics, according to the company. CJ, run by Samsung Group Chairman Lee Kun-hee’s relatives, was part of the country’s largest conglomerate until it broke off in 1993.
Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong, the de facto chief of Samsung, and CJ Group Chairman Lee Jay-hyun are known to have exchanged views over the latest transfer decision.
In April, a former CJ official was sentenced to four and a half years in prison by the Supreme Court for recording compromising videos of Lee Kun-hee and using them to extort hundreds of thousands of dollars from Samsung.
