Mr Soon-hong Ahn has been appointed President of Hanwha Techwin.
Previously Head of Sales & Marketing and former President of Hanwha Techwin America, Mr Ahn’s extensive knowledge of the video surveillance industry and expertise in global marketing have been significant factors in the company’s high growth achievements in a competitive marketplace. This in turn has laid the groundwork for expanding the business globally.
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Ahn said: “Looking back over the past year, we have laid a solid foundation for qualitative growth by demonstrating an impressive performance in three areas: sales growth, efficiency and investment in our future. This has been achieved with ongoing support and encouragement of the Hanwha Group. An excellent example of this has been the opening of our new facility in Vietnam which has enabled us to strengthen our global competitiveness by improving manufacturing efficiency.
“2020 marks the beginning of a new decade during which we will be devoted to becoming a ‘Global Top Security Solution Provider’, by presenting new benefits to our customers through a variety of products and services based on leading-edge technology in video and intelligent security.
“Our plan for the immediate future is to maintain stable growth hinged on qualitative growth strategies, while incorporating core technologies based on mega trends, such as IoT, AI and 5G into our video surveillance solutions and create new business opportunities for system integrators and business partners.”
