The 62-year-old replaces Kim Jo-won, who recently became senior presidential secretary for civil affairs under the Moon Jae-in administration.

KAI posted 1.4 trillion won ($1.1 billion) in sales in the first half, down 2.9 percent from a year ago, but its operating profit surged 102.7 percent on-year to 150.6 billion won.
