SYDNEY: Samsung has appointed a new general manager of corporate marketing, filling the role left by Kurt Jovais when he moved to become marketing director.

The new executive, Lambro Skorpidis, worked previously at Uncle Toby’s Nestle and will report to Jovais when he starts Tuesday.

Skorpidis met with various retailers on Wednesday at the Samsung whitegoods roadshow.

Skorpidis’ appointment comes after an internal re-shuffle that has seen several executives change roles, depart or return to the company in the last few months.
