Samsung is closing in on a new, high level sales director, Mobile has learned.
The sales director’s identity is as yet unknown, but he is understood to have been recruited from a senior sales role at O2.
He will take on the role after the departure of Jon French and Derek Williamson, who left the company in recent months.
The new exec is understood to be highly rated and will bolster the manufacturer’s UK team.
Former Samsung sales chief French left the manufacturer in January to take the UK country manager role at HTC.
Williamson announced his departure at the end of July.
Samsung declined to comment.
