SK Telecom (SKT) has named Park Jung-Ho as its new president and CEO, replacing Jang Dong-Hyun.

Park is currently SK Holdings C&C chief executive officer, a role he has held since January 2015. He has been with the SK group since 1989, holding various positions.

Between 2009 and 2013, he was head of business development division for SKT and oversaw the operator’s acquisition of Hynix, now SK Hynix.

“As the new CEO of SK Telecom, Park is determined to achieve growth and innovation through a new level of ICT convergence by combining mobile telecommunications, the Internet of Things, media, platform and semiconductor,” SK Telecom said. 

“Moreover, he will focus on developing a new growth engine by accelerating SK Telecom’s transformation into a strong ICT platform player, while contributing to the build-up of an enriched ICT ecosystem.”

His appointment is part of a reshuffle that will see Jang move to become sole CEO of the holding group, replacing Park and Cho Dae-sik, who has been named president of the group’s top management team.
