JK Shin - president and CEO of IT and mobile communications division, Samsung
The king of Korea is continuing to impress the market with its seemingly endless appetite for growth. Even with its warnings at the start of the year that smartphone sales would slow down, it rocketed to a record quarter. One handset buyer said: ‘Samsung is covering all facets of the market; it’s finally cracking convergence and making a big tablet play. As a company, it’s starting to grow up a bit.’
The industry will hope JK Shin will ensure its initial supply problems with the S 4 were a blip and the company isn’t too distracted by developing its Tizen operating system. It may be cautious in its predictions but we all know that Samsung is thinking big.
