Samsung restructuring could remove J.K. Shin as head of mobile
One rumored scenario has Mr. Shin removed as head of mobile, which also means that he loses his co-CEO title. Speculation has him replaced at mobile by another co-CEO, B.K. Yoon, who currently runs Sammy's appliances and television business. According to those in the know, Yoon would keep his current responsibilities while adding the mobile unit to his portfolio. A third co-CEO, Kwon Oh-hyun, would remain in his current position overseeing components like semiconductors, and displays.
Having home appliances and mobile together under one leader is not so ridiculous. Samsung has been working on ways to integrate home appliances with mobile devices. Mr. Yoon has been a champion of this way of thinking. He currently earns $3.3 million a year compared to the $10.9 million that Mr. Shin will take home this year.
Samsung does have a clear line of succession at the top. Chairman Lee Kun-hee has had heart related hospitalizations this year, and his only son, Jay Y. Lee, is expected to be the heir apparent for the top spot at the company.
