Boo-Keun Yoon and JK Shin have thus been appointed co-CEOs. They will nevertheless continue to lead their respective branches: Boo-Keun Yoon will operate in the consumer electronics division, and in particular televisions, and JK Shin will operate in IT and mobile telephony.

Samsung therefore now operates with three CEOs. In the past, the Korean brand used to operate the management of each units independently, which had earned him some criticism.
