Samsung monitors manager, Joe Serra, has been made redundant just over 12 months after returning to the vendor.
Sources close to the company told ARN Serra was one of up to seven staff being cut across Samsung’s IT division. It is understood other cuts include a NSW state manager and commercial business development manager.
At this stage, it is unclear why the redundancies have been made. However, the news comes just weeks after Samsung appointed former BenQ Australia’s managing director, Phil Newton, as director of IT.
Serra was unavailable for comment.
Serra returned to Samsung in January 2008, following its decision to retrench general IT manager, Norm Krieke. At the time, the vendor attributed the change to a restructure of its IT operations and management tier.
Serra spent several years with Samsung as national IT sales manager, before quitting in December 2006 to join Panasonic’s professional AV/IT division.
Samsung had not returned requests for comment at time of press.
