Nonghyup Bank CEO offers to resignNonghyup Bank CEO Lee Dae-hoon offered to resign Monday, three months after taking up his position in January.
His resignation has been accepted by the National Agricultural Cooperative Federation, better known as Nonghyup, the parent company of the bank.
Lee has reportedly offered to resign because Nonghyup, which owns 100 percent of Nonghyup Financial Group, appointed Lee Sung-hee as chair last month.
Chief executives of six other Nonghyup companies also offered to resign.
Their resignations were accepted on the same day. Those resigning include Nonghyup Cooperative Bank President So Seong-mo and Nonghyup Agribusiness Group CEO Kim Won-seok.
Nonghyup Financial Group said it would initiate a process of electing a new CEO for the bank unit today.
Until a new CEO is elected, Jang Seung-hyun, vice president at Nonghyup Bank, will fill in for the vacant seat.
