SEOUL, Aug. 19 (Korea Bizwire) - Hyundai Motor reshuffled personnel in China in a bid to boost its performance in the world’s second-largest economy.
The company appointed Tan Tao-hung, the vice president of sales in Sichuan, as the head of Chinese strategies, Lee Byung-ho, who was vice president of the machinery & vehicle parts division, as the head of Hyundai Motor in Beijing, and vice president Kim Gyeon of the planning office of Kia Motors as the head of Kia China.
Kim Tae-yoon, the former head of Hyundai Motor Beijing, will be relocated to manufacturing plants in Beijing as a permanent staff in charge of construction, and Noh Jae-man, who departed as the head of Hyundai Motors Beijing in 2011, will return as a permanent staff in charge of Chinese strategies.
