Cho Hyun-min takes on new roles in Hanjin Group
Cho Hyun-min, the younger sister of Hanjin Group Chairman Cho Won-tae — who infamously threw a drink at an employee in a fit of rage in 2018 — was named an executive of Hanjin Transportation and travel information provider Topas, a subsidiary of Korean Air Lines.
Cho, 37, currently sits as senior vice president at Hanjin KAL, the holding unit of Hanjin Group, and executive vice president of Jungseok Enterprise, a building management arm under the group.
Cho will direct marketing at Hanjin Transportation as senior vice president and develop new business at Topas as its executive vice president.
The appointment is “designed to swiftly respond to the e-commerce market, which has been growing rapidly following Covid-19,” wrote Hanjin in a statement Wednesday.
Hanjin believes Cho's experience as chief marketing officer at Hanjin KAL will help her assume the new roles. She is expected to raise the transportation company’s influence in the international parcel delivery market and discover new businesses in Topas.
