Congratulations and welcome to Gang Seung Lee who is taking over as the new managing director of Hankook’s UK division.
Better known to colleagues and friends as Tony, he will be heading up the tyres manufacturers Daventry-based operations as the company continues to expand its presence in the UK market.
He takes over the role from Richard Page who will continue to work for Hankook for the next 12 months during the handover period ahead of his retirement.
Tony is no stranger to Hankook in the UK having worked closely with Richard for four years before working in Hankook’s European head office in Neu-Isenburg for two years, where he was involved in sales and marketing, along with distribution channel planning.
He rejoins Hankook in the UK at an exciting time in its development and said he was delighted to be leading a successful and proactive team here.
“I enjoyed my time in the UK and am very pleased to be leading this important area for Hankook,’’ he said. “We have some ambitious plans for the future with firm foundations laid under the leadership of Richard.’’
