Samsung Electronics has announced some significant leadership and organizational changes across the company. Earlier, the company had three sub-divisions—Consumer Electronics, Device Solutions, and Mobile & IT—and each of them was headed by separate CEOs since 2017. Today, the company revealed that it has merged Consumer Electronics and Mobile & IT divisions into a new arm called SET.
The SET division will include smartphones, TVs, and home appliances, and it will be headed by a single CEO: Jong-Hee Han. Previously, he led the company’s TV division (Visual Display) and helped the company retain the top position in the global TV market for 15 years in a row. He is expected to drive the company’s future and improve synergies between various divisions under the Samsung Group.

He also headed the company’s Flash Product & Technology Team and was a part of the DRAM Design Team. With the ever-growing demand for cloud infrastructure, Kyehyun Kyung’s role is vital for Samsung in the coming years.
