LG has appointed Jeremy Newing as head of marketing. He replaces Gary Venn, who is leaving to take on a retail post.
Newing will begin his role on 3 December with a one-month handover period.
LG sales director John Barton said: ‘I wanted a month carry-over when Gary leaves us in the New Year and that’s what I’ve been able to achieve.’
Newing (pictured) has held marketing director roles at BenQ-Siemens and Benefon.
Meanwhile, LG account manager Chris Hoyle is leaving the business after more than two years with the company. He will join Motorola in January in a European marketing role. Hoyle was a key account manager and his role included managing LG’s sales to O2 and Vodafone.
‘He is effectively with us until the end of the year, but we’ve agreed that he will be on the end of the phone, tidying up a few things,’ Barton said.
Hoyle sent out an email regarding his departure, which read: ‘After an enjoyable and successful number of years, I have made the decision to leave LG Electronics UK to pursue my career elsewhere in the mobile industry.’Barton is in the process of recruiting a replacement for Hoyle. ‘I wouldn’t think it would take too long because there seems to be quite a few people who would like to work for LG.’
