Samsung Electronics establishing automotive components team focused on infotainment and autonomous driving
As part of its annual structural reorganization, Samsung Electronics has established an automotive components team, which will initially focus on building its competencies in infotainment and autonomous driving vehicles. The operation will be headed by Executive Vice President Jonghwan Park and overseen by Vice Chairman & CEO Oh-Hyun Kwon.
Samsung Electronics’ annual structural reorganization is designed to respond pre-emptively to business uncertainties while maintaining its three business divisions namely IM (IT & Mobile Communications), CE (Consumer Electronics), and DS (Device Solutions).
Samsung’s Visual Display Business established an AV business team, and the Mobile Communications Business established a Mobile Enhancing team focusing on wearables and mobile-related accessories.
In addition, the company strengthened its product planning and R&D organizations with a focus on emerging markets. A product strategy center was established in China with the aim of creating an end-to-end product planning and R&D platform for locally developed products. The company will also expand its local product planning and R&D functions in India.
