Ali Demin leaves Samsung
On his back or back in business?
Long-serving Samsung UK chief Ali Demin left the company this month to "concentrate on returning to full fitness after suffering from a back injury."
That's the official company line, anyway, but Demin is setting up a management recruitment consultancy called adandad.com (AD & AD).
A visit to the site confirms this, with a message reading: "The AD&AD website will be here soon, offering new opportunities in recruitment, training and consultancy for sales and marketing executives in the electronics industries." It says you can contact him on 'email@example.com'.
Demin joined Samsung in 1988 and was awarded its 'Employee of the Year' award in 1997 for his efforts. In 1998, he was promoted to executive director responsible for sales and marketing. Company president Y.C. Kim expressed his sadness to see him go. ®
