LG Australia’s general manager of sales, Michael Doyle has left the company after seven years. He has not yet been replaced and during the transition period, LG managing director, Youngik Lee will serve as acting general manager of sales. The company has commenced an extensive search to fill the vacant role.
In a media statement, LG said that, “Over his many years with LG, Michael has contributed significantly to the company’s success and will leave behind a strong legacy. While his leaving may be regrettable, LG Australia would like to wish Michael every success in his future endeavours.”
“LG remains committed to its customers and will continue to focus on technology for a better life.”
Prior to joining LG in 2008, Doyle spent three years as Hitachi national sales manager Australia New Zealand. From 2000-2005, he held the position of national sales manager for Panasonic Australia.
