Samsung has appointed BenQ veteran, Philip Newton, as its new director of IT in an effort to elevate its national presence.
Newton was previously the managing director of BenQ, and was active in developing the vendor’s channel and home market presence. He spent six years with the vendor.
In his newly created role, Newton will be responsible for directing Samsung’s IT division, with a goal to create increased business for Samsung's print and monitor solutions.
In a release, Samsung claimed the appointment demonstrated a commitment to strengthening the brand’s IT division. Newton stated that key to Samsung’s growth was to align its product range with the evolving needs of the market, with a goal of providing a one-stop-shop to enterprises.
It is understood BenQ has promoted Chee Fui Chung to replace Newton and oversee its Australian operations.
