LG Display, in its annual personnel appointment announcement Wednesday, introduced a new chief technology officer, Yoon Soo-young. Yoon will replace incumbent CTO Kang In-byeong.

All new appointments are effective January 1st, LG Display said.

LG Display said that it has promoted 19 more officials to senior vice president and vice president roles under strict meritocracy -- focusing on their contributions to large-sized OLED’s market penetration, small and medium-sized plastic OLED‘s business normalization and innovations in the liquid crystal display business.

Per this announcement, LG Display will have its first-ever female senior vice president, Kim Hee-yeon, who will be overseeing the company’s investor relations.

Kim, 51, was recognized for establishing grounds for LG Display‘s business intelligence and developing insights into the market and consumers.
