The Yonhap News Agency is today reporting that Apple has recently hired Dominque Oh as its new head of South Korean operations. Oh will move to Apple after working at LG in a number of positions, including most recently as their Vice President of the Smartphone business for the past 13 months. Prior to that he worked as VP of Product Planning and Europe Mobile Business at LG.
Oh has extensive experience from his jobs within LG, where he was required to establish relationships with various operators and partners from across the world and overlook LG’s Android and Windows Phone 7 products, which will no doubt be beneficial in his new job with Apple. Oh will replace the current head of Apple’s South Korean operations, Andrew Sedgwick who held the post for over a decade.
The news comes from a number of “industry insiders” who requested anonymity, but Oh has yet to update his LinkedIn profile, still listing his VP of Smartphone Business at LG as his current job.
