King back to Motorola after one month Samsung stay

James King has re-joined Motorola just days after it emerged that he had left his role as marketing director at Samsung.

King parted Samsung for personal reasons and will join Motorola from this Monday (1 September) as European marketing director, having been the company’s marketing manager during his previous stint.

Samsung celebrated the capture of King as a major coup, as it announced three new high level appointments. The manufacturer had also hired Derek Williamson as general manager, who King was intended to report too, as well as new head of product management Matthew Brum, who joined from Sony Ericsson two weeks ago.

Mark Mitchinson,
Samsung VP for UK and Ireland, said of King’s departure: ‘James’ personal circumstances were very unfortunate and have made it quite difficult. I got on very well with him personally and professionally and wish him all the best for the future.’ 

Samsung is currently in the process of starting the recruitment process afresh.
