The ‘Safety Development and Manufacturing Supervision’ and ‘Business Manager’ organizations were newly established under the CEO. In order to strengthen the company-wide responsibility and authority for safety and health, the role of the existing general manager of development and manufacturing was expanded to the general manager of safety, development and manufacturing.

The business manager will lead the future growth strategy and implementation together with the global business, and Roh Jong-won, in charge of management support, will be promoted to president and lead the organization.

After graduating from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Korea University, President Kwak No-jeong joined Hyundai Electronics’ Process Technology Office, the predecessor of SK Hynix, in 1994, and then worked in R&D and production sites.
