AMD promotes David Kwon to MD of APJ region

Semiconductor manufacturer puts AMD Korea president in charge of APJ

Current president of AMD Korea, David Kwon, has been promoted to managing director and corporate vice-president of the Asia-Pacific and Japan (APJ) region.

Kwon, who is also the general manager of global strategic at Samsung and Toshiba, will be in charge of AMD’s operations and sales across the APJ region, spanning Korea, Japan, India, Australia, New Zealand, Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

As part of the role Kwon will now report to AMD senior vice president and chief sales officer, John Byrne, who expects Kwon to extend his local success across APJ.

“David has done an outstanding job driving end-to-end accountability with a focus on helping ensure AMD-powered Samsung and Toshiba products win in the marketplace,” Byrne said.

Byrne hopes Kwon will further strengthen AMD’s component channel business that consists of AMD’s consumer notebook and desktop business, foster commercial business growth, and expand AMD’s overall business across APJ.

Kwon spent the past two years managing the AMD’s global business with Samsung and Toshiba, and joined the semiconductor manufacturer after spending more than 10 years at Dell.
