LG Electronics Australia will welcome Gemma Lemieux as marketing director later this month, following the departure of chief marketing officer, Angus Jones in November 2019.

Lemieux is a highly experienced marketing professional in the consumer electronics industry, having previously held senior regional roles with Panasonic as director of marketing communications for seven years and Samsung as head of marketing, corporate and telecommunications for almost three years. She joins LG from lifestyle and athletics apparel company Zuu, where she was founder and director. In her new role, she will oversee all LG marketing and brand activity.

LG Electronics Australia human resources director, Amanda Jackson said, “Gemma has extensive industry experience, a passion for brand building and deep understanding of the markets in which we operate. She is a valued addition to the LG team during this important period for our business.”

LG is also currently recruiting a new general manager for its home entertainment division following the relocation of Damian Krotofil to Melbourne. Krotofil was with the company for 18 months following a 10-year tenure at Samsung Electronics in a number of managerial roles.

“As one of the world’s leading consumer electronic brands, we expect to see a number of high-profile candidates and look forward to announcing a replacement soon,” an LG spokesperson said. “We thank Damian for all of his efforts during his time at LG and wish him well for the future.”
