Former Toshiba UK head Med Jeewoth joins Samsung
Former Nokia and Toshiba executive Med Jeewoth will join Samsung from the start of May, Mobile can reveal.
Jeewoth recently quit his post of country manager for Toshiba after establishing links for Toshiba with the likes of Orange and Data Select from being an unknown phone manufacturer in the UK. He has launched the Toshiba TG01 and Portege smartphone range in the UK.
He will bolster the Samsung UK team, initially taking charge of the Phones 4u account and report into head of sales for retail and distribution, Paul Read.
Samsung's UK vice president, Mark Mitchinson, said: ‘I am personally delighted that Med has taken the decision to join Samsung Mobile in such a pivotal role. Med is very well respected within the telecommunications industry and Samsung being able to attract such a high calibre professional clearly demonstrates our drive and appealing reputation for growth and customer excellence.’
