Andy Griffiths promoted to president of Samsung UK & Ireland

In Industry News On

Samsung Electronics today announced the promotion of Andy Griffiths to President of the Samsung business in the UK and Ireland, a new role in which he will continue to lead the entire UK business.

The promotion follows a year in which Samsung has reported growth across all three of its core business groups, mostly owing to the launches of the Galaxy S4 and Gear.

In addition, Andy has been instrumental in Samsung’s support of a range of educational initiatives that are committed to narrowing the technology skills gap. Examples include Samsung’s support of Code Club, aimed at introducing young children in the UK to coding; investment in further Samsung Digital Academies, state-of-the-art training centres for vocational training, and extending the partnership with the British Museum, one of Samsung’s many cultural partners.

Previously, Andy held the role of Managing Director, Samsung Electronics, UK and Ireland, heading up all three business groups: Consumer Electronics, Information Technology and Mobile and B2B.

Andy will continue to work closely with Mr. John Kim, who has now been promoted from the role of Deputy Managing Director, Samsung UK and Ireland, to Deputy President, SEUK. This will also be a new role for the UK and Ireland business.
