Samsung Electronics CEO Kwon Oh-Hyun Resigns, Says Company is Facing an 'Unprecedented Crisis'
14 October, 2017, 00:58
The CEO and vice-chairman of Samsung Electronics Kwon Oh Hyun announced Friday he plans to resign when his term ends in March, saying he believes that the time has come for the company to "start anew".
Along with his seat as the head of the chip arm, Samsung Electronics said Kwon will also retire from his board seat at Samsung Display Co.
Kwon Oh-hyun, who runs the Korean firm's chip and display division and has worked for Samsung in one capacity or another for 32 years, said in an October 13 statement that he believed in light of former head Jay Y. Lee's recent conviction for bribery charges and the related resignation of several board members, including Lee's mentor Choi Gee-sung, the smartphone maker "needs a new leader more than ever" and that it was time for him to move onto the "next chapter" of his life. Kwon claimed he had been thinking about leaving "for quite some time" and could "no longer put it off" - The BBC reports. "But (at the moment) we are hard pressed to read future trends and find new growth engines", Kwon said.
Samsung has been seeking to move past a bribery scandal that saw Lee thrown into jail, and to overcome a damaging recall a year ago of its flagship Galaxy Note 7 smartphone over exploding batteries.
