GS Entec and GS Sports name new CEOs
Doh Jung-hae was named CEO of GS Entec, and Yeo Eun-joo became CEO of GS Sports.
CEOs at GS Construction, GS Caltex and GS Retail remained unchanged.
GS Entec, a subsidiary of GS Global, is an equipment manufacturer for chemical and energy plants. GS Sports manages FC Seoul of the men's professional football club and GS Caltex Seoul KIXX of the women’s professional volleyball team.
Doh previously managed personnel and legal issues at GS Holdings and GS Global while Yeo has been working in the communications division at GS Holdings. Yeo will maintain that role and sit as the CEO of GS Sports.
Thirty people, including three talents from outside GS Group and six newly promoted executive vice presidents, have been newly appointed.
Thursday's announcement was the first personnel reshuffle since GS Holdings Chairman Huh Tae-soo replaced older brother Huh Chang-soo in December last year.
GS Caltex CFO Yoo Jae-young was named the vice president of the company, which is Korea’s second-largest refiner by sales.
“This year’s personnel reshuffle was conducted a month earlier than usual years in order to rapidly draw out the blueprint for the future new businesses and to preemptively respond to the global economic uncertainties in the Covid-19 era,” said GS Holdings in a statement Thursday.
The promotions will be effective January.
